REVIEWS
Average points: 4.59 (Reviews: 22)
*****
Musikalisch ziemlich fröhlich, frühe Single dieser neuseeländischen Band, aus der später auch Crowded House entstand.
*****
Klingt ganz nett - aus dem 1982er 'Time & Tide'-Album.
Weil zu der Zeit der Krieg auf den Falkland Islands stattfand, assoziierten viele Briten den Song mit den Ereignissen, weshalb der Song auch von den Playlists von britischen Radiosendern verschwand. Dabei hatte der Song rein gar nichts mit dem Krieg zu tun - tja, Dummheit eben.
******
Wieder ein ganz starker Song dieser Gruppe. Er kommt locker leicht daher und erinnert soundmäßig an die Maori, die neuseeländischen Ureinwohner. Mit # 2 in der australischen Hitparade zumindest dort ein Riesenerfolg.
*****
Muss man wohl 'six months on a leaky boat' verbringen um solche Musik zu schreiben?
Oder war es die neuseeländische Landschaft mit all ihren Orks und Hobbits, die der Band zu solch kreativen Ergüssen verholfen hat?
Ich weiss es nicht. Fakt ist aber, dass das ein äusserst gelungener, abwechslungsreicher Song ist. Die Synthis blubbern und fiepen, eine Chilbi-Karussell-Orgel gibt sich im Mittelteil kurz die Ehre und daneben gibts als einzige Konstante den fröhlich-beschwingten Rhythmus.
*****
Ein wunderschöner locker-flockiger Popsong mit einer genialen Melodie.
******
Klasse!
*****
Very cool track that I admire a lot more now.

Great chorus especially, but the whole thing is pretty cool.
*****
ein sehr schönes, verträumtes (Synth) Pop-Stück der Neuseeländer – 5*...

#83 im Juli 1983 in UK...
***
Peaked at #2 in Australia, 1982.
******
One of their best. The solo is especially cool.
*****
Great song.
****
Ist mir in den 80s nie aufgefallen - klingt auch reichlich nach Blumenwiese.
****
Kommt doch ziemlich brav + unschuldig daher,absolut nicht
nachvollziehbar, warum der auf den Index des Thatcher-
England kam, Falkland-Krieg hin oder her....

4 +
*****
Pretty awesome.
******
Love it! My favourite track from them :)
****
Aardig.
*****
5 stars
**
Really not a fan of this. I find this incredibly average and it will always remind me of The Wiggles which is not a good thing. They have better songs.
*****
passt schon

CDN: #7, 1982

Crap of the highest order.
