i was in sydney, on the way to a friend's wedding when i heard that paul hester had killed himself. splitz end on count down on a sunday night were a big part of my formative years, and the early crowded house years my early high school years. it's one of those moments. like being in seeing ears with gavin and karl when our previous prime minister (still can't bear to say his name) announced the first persian war.
i saw them play about a million times, usually at the thebby theatre. this song was a regular on their play list and still makes me dance in some silly pseudo-c&w style.
how i stumbled upon in on you tube is a long story. best if you don't ask
