Dont Dream It’s Over (Hey Now) by Crowded House, Donohoe & Grimes Acoustic Cover

June 9, 2010 25 Comments


Jeff Donohoe (Bass/Vocals) and Mike Grimes (Guitar/Vocals). Playing unplugged (except for the Bass) at Jeff’s place in Albuquerque NM on Feb. 25 2009. Nothing fancy, we just put a camera in the corner and played. A funny thing… although Crowded House is a New Zeland based band, Tim Pierce (from Albuquerque New Mexico) played guitar on their debut album in 1986 (he played all those cool little lead flavorings). I knew Tim in and after highschool, and his band “Traveler” used to play in our school cafeteria (about 1/4 mile from where This recording was made). He even ran sound for one of my bands at a party one night in the early 80s… (what a great player!)

    @mdonohoe22 Hey Michael…glad you like it. I’m uploading a couple live vids for fun, but the quality is not so good. I hope to do some in the greenhouse soon. Hope all is going well….Jeff 5

    Sweetness, i found the full translation in another video, but thanks anyway. I love this version, a big kiss and success for both are handsome.

    El título … No sueñes que se ha terminado …
    Hay libertad dentro, hay libertad sin
    tratar de atrapar la gran cantidad en un vaso de papel …
    No creo que se traduce muy bien, y mi español no es muy grande
    tienen una maravillosa Cinco De Mayo…. J5

  18. miamicanes04 says:

    Another great song.. I swear im gonna figure out how to put u 2 on my ipod..

  19. PecosMtJeff says:

    We do plan more videos soon, waiting for warmer weather to shoot in the greenhouse or by the pool…Hallelujah is a possibility (Hmmmm), but we also have some other new stuff… Goo Goo Dolls etc. My brother Rob lives a couple blocks from the Brooklyn bridge on the Brooklyn side…. far from my home in the Wild West. Take care…Jeff 5

  20. PecosMtJeff says:

    Thanks for the good morning laugh and for stopping by! Lets see.. on Capt. Kirk… I’ve lost 25 lbs since this video was shot, so I am now more like the Kirk who fought the Gorn and kissed the swanky green girl (She packed my bags last night…Pre-Flight… I was given the Shatner/Nimoy CD for Christmas).

  21. nechandi says:

    I know I’ve commented on here before, I just love coming back this cover is simply incredible a surprisingly good accompaniment to walking home over the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC.

    Is there any chance we could get a non bar room version of “Free Fallin”? Also more U2, and I know a long shot for sure but maybe a cover of “Hallelujah”?

    Long shots I know, but something about you guys just keeps me coming back for more.

    Well that and the Kirk thing, thankfully you dont sing like Will Shatner.

  22. SOYUNDELFIN says:

    @PecosMtJeff woo that sounds so cool.

  23. PecosMtJeff says:

    Thank You for the compliment! I notice that you like Rick Springfield. He is a really nice person. My former roommate and band partner Derek plays keyboards in his band these days. I’ve seen them play many times.

  24. SOYUNDELFIN says:
