FT » Music » Split Enz - "One Step Ahead"

Yeah, this track's over 20 years old, but stumbling upon long-forgotten gems like this is one of my favorite things about setting my 60 GB iPod to random. I really dig the air of menace throughout this song. These Kiwis have to be one of the most criminally underappreciated bands of the early '80s. Time hasn't been kind to many of the acts from the New Wave movement, but this is one band -- and especially one song -- that's held up extremely well over the years. Good on ya, Brothers Finn!
