In 2002 I had a brainwave whilst driving to work. I don’t know where it came from, but here’s the result of some late night coding.I think that Neil Finn is the world’s best singer/songwriter – and this service is a tribute to his work. There are over 280 phrases from over 70 songs Neil and his brother Tim has written in the database. This collection spans from 1979 with the Split Enz album Frenzy to their most recent work in 2004 on his second Finn Brothers album, Everyone Is Here
