    it’s a song about New Zealand , Aotearoa is Maori for New Zealand , well i guess it’s more about the white man coming to new zealand really .

    A very nautical song.
    The Anthem of Sailing !!

    no it was released during v falkland conflict n when hms sheffield was sunk they banned it from radio in case it upset people in uk. ver r references to discovery n gratitude to sailors who did it. inte4resting concept of being about personal difficulties- hadnt considered that!

    Amazing song and video :-)

  5. unique video i like it however becuase it is not like any other music video on VH1, MTV, MTV2, MTV X that i have ever seen but then again New Wave in the early 80′s only caught on in Germany, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Northran Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

    Even XM/Sirius doesn’t know this band exists. It’s sad. Thank God for YouTube.

    On the CD, the intro is a separate song. But even still, it’s so amazing.

    Naw, but BBC radio thought it was therefore it didnt get jack for airplay

  20. I read somewhere this song was about The Falklands War, and the British task force sailing down across the Atlantic.
