9. Don’t Dream it’s Over by Sixpence None the Richer
“Don’t Dream It’s Over” is a song which belongs to the Australian band Crowded House, and which could be found on their debut studio album from 1986.
In case you (for some very good reason) get tired of the echo of Neil Finn’s soothing voice in your head every time you whistle the melody of this song try switching to the Sixpence’s version. There won’t be much change when it comes to pleasantness of the sound, but Leigh Nash’s gentle dreamy voice will tell a slightly different story. With honesty and imagination of a child sensed in her singing she will tell you to dream on since it is not over yet.
…There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re traveling with me…(Don’t Dream it’s Over)
