NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month - Day 24

Another song from Conflicting Emotions, and another video from that odd space invaders game sort of thing that's used the music.

I Wake Up Every Night was a definite oddity as far as it style and music went; some of the entertaining things about listening to a Split Enz album for the first time are the "is this the right band?" moments. Here the music is mostly propelled by a wheezy sounding synthesizer line over bass, percussion and what sounds like a drum machine, with a few token guitar notes thrown into the chorus to remind listeners that Neil Finn is still in the band.
