THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: CROWDED HOUSE - DON'T DREAM IT'S OVER

"Don't Dream It's Over", by Crowded House
"Don't Dream It's Over" is a pop/rock song written by Neil Finn and performed by Crowded House for their selftitled debut album.

It became the band's biggest international hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was featured in "The Stand" motion picture. The lyrics are about a lover telling his partner that despite the barriers and obstacles attempting to divide them, they must persevere while continuing to dream that their union is forever.

The music video, which features some surreal special effects such as household objects – including shattering crockery – and film reels that float in the air, shows lead singer Neil Finn playing a guitar and walking through the same house during different time periods while his bandmates are either performing household chores or playing various backing instruments. It was nominated for Best Group Video, and Best Direction at the 1987 MTV Video Music Awards, and earned the group a Best New Artist award.
