Is this one of the best ballads of the 1980's? "Better Be Home Soon" is culled from Crowded House's second album, the great Temple Of Low Men (1988) and is a classic on par with their most well-known hit ballad "Don't Dream It's Over" from their 1986 debut. They both tell us quite plainly that Neil Finn is one of the world's finest songwriters. When he's at his best he's up there with the likes of Lennon/McCartney, Difford & Tilbrook and the like. So there!
