    “give us Tina, one more time!” i love Paul Hester, and that concert was amazing! i’m a fan, and i’ve got it! lol i’m still saying to people, “ooooh allo, allo, allo, allo, allo!” all the time! freaks my co-workers out cuz they just don’t know! haha

    Better Be Home Soon! Great song!! my husband bought me the Farewell To The World DVD for Christmas this past year, knowing full well that I’ve got a huge crush on Neil Finn and his music! LOL that is one great concert, and I am saddened that I probably will never get to see them live. That being said, I’m so glad that i have the DVD, and youtube for the videos.

    Well you just made me feel really old gabey123. :-) I agree with you your sentiments. This really was their favorite era for me as well. What’s truly great how Crowded House’s music appeals to people all over the world of all age groups. Their music truly is timeless and special in very rare way. Cheers from California

    i totally agree! so sad that paul passed away, i was so sad, and over in america i saw one thing that said he had passed away and thats alll!
    i sometimes hear their more popular songs on the radio and a solo neil finn and get so excited but for their good stuff you have to search online :/

  7. gabey123 says:

    haha my mom got it, thats how we heard of the third song they’re playing in this!

  8. gabey123 says:

    hahaha they do look awkward and kind of bored…but still this is my favorite time of the band like the year and how they look! and the songs are amazing. i would of been completely stocked but i wasn’t even born than haha

  9. Nigelxman says:

    @gabey123 Those people? Oh you mean those 50 awkward looking 17 year old girls. :-)

  10. ramadarose41 says:

    btw… have you seen the clips from their last concert together, “Farewell To The World” in Sydney? get the DVD if you’re a fan; it is incredible, and Paul is hilarious!!

  11. ramadarose41 says:

    i know, just to be in the same room with them, to shake their hands and thank them for the awesome music would be an amazing thing! sadly, they are a seriously underrated band in the U.S. i didn’t even know most of their music until a few years ago because they were not played in America. UGH! stupid American media!!

  12. gabey123 says:

    seriously how lucky are those people to be that close to such an amazing band, maybe i’m just biased because ever since i could remember my mom has listened to them and crowded house and than got me hook. i think they and neil finn are completely talented, i love the harmonies!!
    i love pauls silliness and how they all seem like they got along, like a bunch of silly brothers!!

  13. Enfin2010 says:

    yup, it’s a Kramer Ferrington standard. I don’t the manufacturer exists now. Think it went broke. Anyway if you wanna try and find a 2nd hand one around thats what to look for.

  14. ramadarose41 says:

    oh oh oh their harmony during “Throw Your Arms Around Me” wow! brings tears to my eyes!! thanks again auspete!!!!

  15. FinnLlywelyn says:

    I love Neil’s acoustic-electric guitar — it sounds great and looks very cool. Anybody know the brand/model?

  16. jnic13 says:

    Neil Finn – just 30 years old here but with already a backlog of great songs that would make most artists jealous with envy.

  17. Thank You! I remember watching this on the factory…so great to see it again, I’ll always miss Hessie…

  18. SpencerIves says:

    Second verse of throw your arms = Always epic

  19. noizyme says:

    Such great voices, harmonies, and playful energy. This is the first I’ve seen of these guys like this. Great video.

  20. Fantastic-Still got such spirit.

    What a great band, Miss you always Hessie. It’s your shout for the coffee’s…..

  21. what an amazing voice Neil has, so beautiful, yet so sad sometimes. those guys didn’t need any instruments but that guitar and their voices, such wonderfully incredible harmony. i’m always amazed watching this video at how talented they were.

  22. versions of all songs, but i was speaking of Sister Madly in my post. ss for replying to my own post.

  23. i love this version, thanks for posting it Auspete! anyone else notice that callick on the back of Neil’s head? a bit reminiscent of much earlier videos like Bold As Brass! LOL he has always been adorably cute, and he’s only gotten better with age! :-) great song, great harmony… love you Paul, wish you were here.

    28th March 2005 . . . the date I realised my husband cheated on me for the second (and final) time – the day that Paul Hester’s death was announced on the TV too!
    I was FAR MORE UPSET over the latter!
    RIP Paul Hester, may you entertain the angels wherever you tread now!
    Ravenna xxxxx
