Liam Finn - Better to Be (live) (official high quality)
This is a great version of Liam Finn's Better to Be. I have been a big fan of Liam Finn for quite some time now, his father is Neil Finn of Crowded House, a band that I really enjoyed as a wee lad in New Jersey. What I like about his music is that it seems so effortless. That the songs are pleasant and poppy, and not pretentious. It almost feels like he's doing something that anyone could do, but at the same time the simplicity is what's so difficult. What he does is tells a nice story to a great tune, and beckons you to join him in his journey. It's nothing that's going to blow your hair back. It's not something that makes you jealous, or make you think that you're not doing what you're supposed to be doing. It isn't unique or by any means avant garde, but it's good singer/songwriter music that will leave you with a good feeling in your soul.
