just listened to a podcast in which the host interviews a musical artist about the origins of a song. (not the popular one, a knockoff series that’s just getting started.)

In interviewing Neil Finn about “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” this guy repeatedly insists that it is also “well-known” as “the Hey Now, Hey Now” song, AND ALSO he repeatedly drops a word from that phrase, calling it the “Hey Now Now” song.

I don’t know a single person in their 30s. Maybe…. maybe… the dinks who call records “vinyls” also call “Don’t Dream It’s Over” the hey now, hey now song. That’s not what my angry “well actually” is about.

my gripe is that the “Hey Now Now” song is by Sisters of Mercy. OBVIOUSLY. GODDDD.
