About Pineapple Head

"Pineapple Head" is a 1993 song by Australian-New Zealand rock band Crowded House from their fourth studio album Together Alone. It was released as a single in October 1994. The song was later included on the group's greatest hits compilation Recurring Dream. It was also performed by the band in their farewell concert Farewell to the World in 1996. The song was left off the initial VHS release and television broadcast, but was, however, restored for the ten-year anniversary DVD release. In 2005 Natalie Imbruglia recorded a version of "Pineapple Head" to contribute to She Will Have Her Way, a tribute to Neil Finn and Tim Finn by various female musicians and bands. The single's cover art was created by Reg Mombassa, the artist responsible for creating the clothing brand Mambo Graphics and who had also been a member of popular Australian band Mental as Anything. The cover features a man with three eyes and a pineapple for a head, indicative of the song title. The original inspiration for the song was Neil's son, Liam Finn, who uttered several phrases which later became lyrics while affected by fever. The song shares musical similarities with "Norwegian Wood" by the Beatles.

Detective is flat
No longer is always flat out
Got the number of getaway car
Didn't get very far

As lucid as hell and these images
Movin' so fast like a fever
So close to the bone
I don't feel too well

And if you choose to take that path
I will play you like a shark
And I'll clutch at your heart
I'll come flying like a spark to inflame you

Sleeping alone for pleasure
The pineapple head it spins and it spins
Like a number I hold don't remember
If she was my friend it was a long time ago

And if you choose to take that path
I will play you like a shark
And I'll clutch at your heart
Come flying like a spark to inflame you

Sleeping alone for pleasure
The pineapple head it spins and it spins
Like a number I hold don't remember
If she was my friend it was a long time ago

And if you choose to take that path
Would you come to make me pay?
I will play you like a shark
And I'll clutch at your heart
I'll come flying like a spark to inflame you

I'll clutch at your heart
And come flying like a spark to inflame you
