One step ahead of you Stay in motion, keep an open mind Love is a race won by two Your emotion, my solitude If I stop, I could lose my head So I'm losing you instead Either way I'm confused You slow me down, what can I do There's one particular way I have to choose. One step ahead of you Always someone makes it hard to move She says, Boy I want you to stay But I save it all for another day If I stop, I could lose my head But I'm ready for romance Either way I'm confus.

Dirty Creature. History Never Repeats. Hard Act to Follow. Split Enz returned to Australia to make their next album, 1978's Frenzy, re-recording many songs from the Luton tapes. However, the final product paled in comparison to the demos - the high energy of the original tapes simply wasn't captured and many of the best songs were left on the demos. Many of the Luton recordings would later resurface on the A&M version of Frenzy, released in North America in 1981. Morning Guys and Gals My Split Enz article will be in next months of Vive Le Rock, it includes an interview with Nigel Griggs. We are also planning to include a sidebar of the top ten Split Enz tracks. Igor Wolters. 13 June at 09:40. My Split Enz collection on vinyl and cd Con Kyrkou. 12 June at 03:26
