Hey now, Hey now!

Was listening to random songs on Pandora today and this song brought back some great memories from school. A friend and I used to listen to this number continously that I still remember every guitar chord. During my teens, I thought the lyrics was very philosophical but then I also thought Michael Jackson was the best pop musician. Regardless of the lyrical value, this has been a great inspiration for me and probably for millions around the world during late 80s/early 90s.

Performed by the New Zeland band Crowded House, this song has been covered by other artists including Howie Day and Paul Young.

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

    I still think he was the greatest. Don’t think lower of his music just because of his bad rep.
