A Song For the 6th of the Month: "Six Months In a Leaky Boat” by Split Enz

Here's my salute to songs with numbers in them. Every day this month, I'll select a song with the number of the month in the title.

To celebrate the 6th day of the month, here’s a song from 1982, “Six Months in a Leaky Boat” by the New Zealand band Split Enz (from their album Time and Tide). This is one of the first videos I ever saw on MTV. A stellar song is embellished by lo-tech video production and a genuine affection for nautical endeavors. It’s a tone and spirit that popular music gave up on a long time ago.

What songs do you like with "Six" in the title? Leave ideas in the comments!
