The World Where You Live

For the first time, I was able to recognize three separate songs before full wakefulness. The first was a Bruce Springsteen song. I’m not a huge fan of Bruce so I’m not sure how he got in there. Maybe he impressed himself in my mind when he jammed his crotch into the camera during the Super Bowl half-time show.

I don’t know the name of the song but could find it if I took the time. I’m just glad it wasn’t accompanied by visions of his crotch-tacular acrobatics.

The second song was “The World Where You Live” by Crowded House. The video is below. Check out how young those guys are. I think the song is from way back in 1987. Weren’t they still Split Enz that far back? I guess not.

The last song was “Walk On the Ocean” by Toad the Wet Sprocket. Love that song. It makes me think of my buddy, Icehole, for some reason. We used to live together back in the early 1990s and I probably heard that song a great deal around the house.  I love that band.

I’m not posting them, though, as their song really only joined the chorus of voices in my head as I rose for the day. I don’t think it counts. What do you think?

Quick, of what does this song remind you?

  1. Ah, Toad. Where did those guys go? They got a little sweet toward the end, but man, that was the right music for the right time, at least in my head.

  2. Hey – buddy!
    That song was a staple in that house. Good memories, both long ago and far away.

    Take care, bastige.

  3. I think Crowded House is back together now. Broke up back in the early 2000s or something? Anyway, Neil (the younger Finn and probably the more well known) has done some solo stuff and got together as The Finn Brothers with big brother Tim. Good stuff, those guys. Always been a fan since the Split Enz days.

    Oh. And Duke Sucks. Farkin’ Icehole.
