The eleventh song from The Way We Fall‘s unofficial soundtrack is one I’m sure many of you are familiar with, though probably not this version — Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”, covered by Sarah Blasko:

I love the original version of this song too. It’s been one of my favorites, for its apocalyptic feel and message of determination, since I first heard it as a kid. But I though Sarah Blasko’s rendition fit the book better. It’s a song for Kaelyn, refusing to give up, so a female vocal makes sense. And I think the stripped down instrumentation works well with the straight-forward way Kaelyn bares her thoughts and feelings in her journal.

Originally published at Megan Crewe - another world, not quite ours. You can comment here or there.
