Click to listen to John Doe's 'Never Enough'

"Never Enough," the first track from John Doe's upcoming album Keeper, finds the rocker sounding as spirited and intense as when he was the frontman of the legendary punk rock band X in the Eighties. The song, a brisk rave-up complete with zippy horn blasts, soulful backing vocals and inspired lead guitar licks, sets the pace for an album that's noticeably more optimistic and upbeat than Doe's previous solo set, which had focused on a bleak country rock sound. Keeper won't be in stores until August 30th, but you can stream the song now.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
