Wow, such ELITE songwriting skillz!

I actually sang (and played organ) on this once in a one-off amateur expat band in Tokyo.
The chorus is too high for my register so I rehearsed the whole song in a lower octave, but on the night I accidentally started singing the verse in the original key (thanks, stage nerves), so I ended up having to sing the chorus at a lower octave than the verse. But overall it probably wasn't much worse than the Chris Martin live cover in this video.

Very interesting to hear the demo.

Danm that sucked. On the ledge main page all I saw was th first half of th thread title and hoped it was something like “Neil Finn discusses how rehearsals coming along” or something exciting.
