Whitney Houston's death on February 11th is expected to be ruled an accident. Sources close to the ongoing investigation of the singer's death have told E! News that "nothing suspicious" has been found to connect the circumstances of her death to any physicians or people of interest.

"She had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself," the source told E! News. Full toxicology results will not be ready until next week, and until then, police will not officially comment on the case.

“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.
