Split Enz

Split Enz were one of the most successful New Zealand musical acts of the 1980s. Formed in the early 1970s and variously featuring Phil Judd and brothers Tim Finn and Neil Finn, the band would go on to achieve chart success in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada ‒ most notably with their 1980 single "I Got You" - and build a cult following elsewhere. Their musical style was eclectic, incorporating influences from art rock, vaudeville, swing, punk, rock, new wave, and pop. Split Enz established a reputation for a highly distinctive visual style, thanks partly to their colourful, offbeat costumes and hairstyles. more »

Hiding in the wings forever
We'll take the stage, 'cause it's now or never
And the whole thing reeks of cheap striptease
The matinee idylls they all fall to their knees
It's not all first nights at all
here's nothing more dull than a curtain call
`Get on with it'
Playing Romeo, you make your debut, ha!
Rose red cheeks but your face is all blue

It's not all bouquets & white crayons
They're going to laugh when you look down
I'm going to ask you if you want to be a chorus boy
You can mime the tragedy while we all sing along
It's not all first nights at all
There's nothing more dull than a curtain call
`Jolly good show everyone'
