‘Something So Strong’ by Crowded House – Classic Hit or Miss
“Something So Strong” is a rock song written by Neil Finn and performed by the band Crowded House for their debut album Crowded House. It was released as the album’s final single.
The song lends its title to the book Something So Strong by Australian biographer Chris Bourke, which catalogues the band’s career from forming to just after their breakup in 1996. According to the book, “Something So Strong” was the first song written specifically for Crowded House, however while in the studio, producer Mitchell Froom and Finn reworked parts of the song and as such, Froom is listed as a co-writer of the song.
The Song Hit #7 on the charts in the US in 1987, and would be the 2nd and only top 10 hit for Crowded House. How about today?
