Split Enz - I Got You, 1980

'I don't know why sometimes I get frightened! You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying...' So how does one deal with floods of overwhelming, irrational anxiety? Well, you should probably hang out in a picture frame while your lead singer makes goofy faces in an empty room and gets freaked out by some floating, disembodied eyes. That seems to have worked out for these youngsters, who were able to reform later as Crowded House and dominate the airwaves all through the summer of 1986 with 'Don't Dream it's Over'. See? Simple. I'm going to start singing to picture frames right now and see if it works.
