Don't Dream It's Over (Crowded House cover)



 Genre: Acoustic Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

In my quest to do covers of all my favorite songs of the 80s, it's time for one of my favorite tunes. This is a stripped down acoustic number with guitar, vocals and, the debut of my Hohner Melodica. I've had it for about a year, but this is the first time I've recorded with it.

This is also the first tune I've done using my new iMac, which replaced the almost 10-year-old model I was using. Logic runs SO much better now.

Anyhoo, I hope y'all enjoy.

Nice version of this song
the melodica sounds great! The middle instrumental section worked out really well. Fine voice on a challenging tune.

Cover the thang!
Well done, has great spirit and the reading of the lyric works, especially for the sparse production, thanks for sharing your work with us here.

Love the MOOD of this Joseph. (Always been a sucker for sad and/or somber reflective tunes.)

Don't Dream It's Over
Our cover band often starts with this song. It is such an iconic song. Nice version, Joseph. Wistful and spacey. The Melodica sounds great in the solo and that gentle acoustic fits in very well. Thanks.
