Crowded House - Don't Dream It's Over. One of my favourite Auski (Australian/Kiwi) bands. I love listening to their albums particularly when I'm outside on the verandah, watching the sunset as I sip my iced tea on a warm summer's night - I had this happening tonight - which is what inspired my music pins tonight (even though it's Autumn, it was pretty warm; the cicadas were chirping too). It was so relaxing & calm to wind down to at the end of the day; love my Australia & love these lads.
The single "Don't Dream It's Over" was an international hit that made it to #2 on the US Billboard charts on April 25, 1987, and has recently also been used in TV commercials by the New Zealand Tourist Commission; its follow-up "Something So Strong" peaked at #7 on the charts. The album itself reached #12 on the US charts in 1987 and made it to 6x platinum status in Australia by 2006.
