Message to My Girl

A clear-cut, heartfelt ditty that is a real departure from Split Enz’s previous musical eccentricities, "Message to My Girl" is as close to a straightforward love song as the skewed Kiwi new-wave geniuses have ever done. Adorned with sparkling New Romantic-styled synth tinklings and a sincere Neil Finn vocal, it’s no wonder why this achingly pretty ode to a new love, which has lost none of its blissful lustre after 24 years, remains a live mainstay during Finn’s Crowded House, Finn Brothers and solo days. Check out the relatively simple, yet appealing video clip here.
