Und wieder ein gänsehaut song von die Vorgänger von die Gruppe "Crowded House".... Im sommer 1984 ist es Ihrer grosste erfolg in NL...auf platz # 18..... auf das album "Conflicting Emotions"...

Wirklich toller Song. Ich habe mich damals darüber aufgeregt, dass dieser Song im deutschen Radio konsequent ignoriert wurde, während er auf Hilversum 3 und BFBS rauf und runter gespielt wurde
*****
▓ Hun grootste succes in de Nederlandse hitlijsten hadden de gebroeders "Neil & Tim Finn" in de jaren 80 met deze goede plaat "Message To My Girl", augustus / september 1984 !!! Niet zo mooi als hun plaat "I Hope I Never" maar toch ook minstens 5 sterren waard !!! (NL Top 40: 7 wk / # 13) !!!
****
wirklich anhörbar
******
Ein sehr schöner Song, der bereits wie spätere Songs der Nachfolge-Formation 'Crowded House' klingt.
******
Sehr Gut!
***
Halbwegs erträglich.
*****
Im Jan 84 in Australien veröffentlichte Single, dort # 12 in den Charts. Eine sehr gute Ballade, die das Songwriting-Talent des späteren Crowded House-Gründers Neil Finn unterstreicht. Als im Aug 84 die Single in Europa und den USA veröffentlicht wurde nahm leider keiner Notiz davon.
*****
Leuke en goede plaat van deze jongens van Split Enz.
*****
Neil Finn - ein großer Songschreiber! Und dann erst noch so schön ausgearbeitet.
*****
Sehr schöner Song
*****
prachtige single van Split Enz met de mooie stem van Neil Finn (die in 1986 de succesvolle band Crowded House zou oprichten)
******
Awesome track, one of their best!
*****
Peaked at #12 in Australia, 1984.
*****
ein schön instrumentalisiertes und arrangiertes Stück der neuseeländischen (Art) Rockband – knapp aufgerundete 4.5...

...gut...

Für meinen Geschmack vielleicht einen Tick zu brav und
glattgebügelt daherkommend, aber geht schon noch in
Ordnung....

4 +
*****
I love the way Split Enz can craft lovely melodies but still wrap it up into a package that can see commercial success. With this song I like the way how it keeps building to the chorus, and even once it gets there it keeps going. Lovely work Mr. Finn!
