    Neil Finn is the brother of Tim Finn writer of one of my favourite tunes who appeared together as members of Split Enz -

    Link only - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38Nm20bML30



    Interesting facts...

    "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" is a single from New Zealand art rock group Split Enz's album Time and Tide. It was written by Tim Finn and released as a single in 1982.

    The song is a reference to the time it took pioneers to sail to New Zealand (hence the reference to Aotearoa and "The Tyranny of Distance" - a history by Geoffrey Blainey), and a metaphor that refers to lead singer Tim Finn's nervous breakdown.

    The song was "discouraged from airplay" in Britain during the Falklands War by the BBC for reasons of morale - it was thought that references to leaky boats were not appropriate during the naval action in the war.

    RIP - Australian drummer for Split Enz and Crowded House Paul Hester (8 January 1959 – 26 March 2005)
