A song a day: Straightjacket Fits - Down in Splendour

I think Shayne Carter must be forever pissed about Down in Splendour. Carter wrote the bulk of songs for Straightjacket Fits and to his credit, he has written a great many songs. However, the band will always be best know for Splendour which was written and sung by his bandmate Andrew Brough. It's legend that Carter ousted Brough not long after the success of this song and the subsequent LP Blow is all Carter (a great record too but out of print as far as I know). Anyhow, here is a slice of pure New Zealand indie pop bliss - this song never fails to make me feel better.
