Icehouse

Though it has had varying personnel, Icehouse was essentially a vehicle for the work of Australian Iva Davies. Davies formed the first version of the band under the name Flowers in 1980 and began scoring hits in Australia with the group's first single, "Can't Help Myself." (Icehouse was the name of Flowers' first album, but the group changed its name as it went international, to avoid conflicts with another band.) They first reached the U.S. charts in 1981 with "We Can Get Together" but did not score a substantial hit until 1988's "Crazy." This was followed by the Top Ten hit "Electric Blue," written by John Oates. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

liked electric blue when I was young I thought it was playing on a satalite station wild feed electric blue came across screen, suddenly topless girls showed, turnd out to be a porno station, learned something new that day!
Haven't heard this song in so long, gotta say I miss it! !!!!
Love you guys
Their album Measure For Measure is one of the top five of all time!
Never get sick of Hey Little Girl
Grew up on icehouse fantastic band
What about the CD Measure for Measure?
I love 80s music and Icehouse rocks. Especially the song "Electric Blue" . It reminds me of my favorite color, Bright Blue (Royal Blue).
Not possibly the best mullet-The best. Just check out the Crazy video.
Awesome song and singer.....
And possibly the BEST mullet of the 80's...... ;•)
Iva Davies could take a plain pop/rock song and make it into something otherworldly . A sound you could see forever in. Transcending the mundane. It's something very special.
Uniform 12 version, that is.
This band rocks. Thanks to the movie Young Einstein for having Great Southern Land play as Yahoo runs through the desert. I heard it and fell hard.
Love Icehouse. There is some live stuff on YouTube. Another great band that I listen to all the time is C**k Robin.
Best Aussie band there has ever been IMO :o)

Man of Colors was a defining moment in my life. I don't have much other experience wth the band but will check out their other tunes.

I lived in LA in the late 80's and always heard an extended version of No Promises great song for late night drives in the hills one of my favs.
does a killer version of John Lennon's Cold Turkey
The best pop band on the planet today. Iva and the guys rock!
Measure for Measure isn't on the Discography either. Wonder how they choose what to put in there and what not.
This song -- the biggest hit -- is my least favorite. Except for the killer sax solo it sounds way too much like Hall & Oates (bleh). Iva Davies is a musical genius whose work deserves to be better known. I can't stop playing the debut CD (Flowers) -- every song is simply devastating. And Iva is still composing and singing as well as ever.

Electricblue -- A climax in notes!!!! I can fly so high I can't breath when I hear this song!!!
Iva Davies has a beautiful,ev o c a t i v e and classy voice.

Fell in LOVE with this band when I first heard Street Cafe back in the 80's. I've since worn out all my tapes and CD's of them - literally! I can't find any downloads or CD's to replace them! Why aren't they available??
Gifted writer, performer and vocalist. As a radio pro for decades, I've heard a million performers and Iva's voice & performances will remain one of my top 5 in all the world. He's created songs that will be my lifetime favorites. Unique and completely wonderful.
Why isn't the album "Icehouse" itself on the discography? It's one of the best over-all albums EVER. I also can't find it on CD anywhere. I've only heard a few songs from their later stuff, but not one of them compares to "Fat Man".
I have loved this mans voice for over twenty years now, I never tire of any of their songs.. Never will either.
My dad showed me their songs. They are awesome!
Great Southern Land is THE song by Icehouse. I've lived in the U.S for about 14 years and I still play it in my car - LOUD. People have NO IDEA who the band is >:)
SO much great music from Icehouse. NOT, however, available on iTunes???!!! I suggest a "campaign"-- e v e r y time you're on iTunes, do a search for Icehouse; perhaps this will spur them to including among their collection.

I have couple LPs from these guys...they are worn out from all the play. Their self titled album Icehouse is awesome.
I adore Icehouse as much now as I did in the 80's!
"Crazy" has to be my fav.
This is one of my favorite artists of all time. I hope he somehow finished BiPolar Poems; I would like to hear the whole CD.

Paradise is Awesome!
i like great southern land ,and street cafe
mcshap
Roxy Music and Brian Ferry are also similar.

"electric blue" rocks
mallory314
I like "Crazy" because the lyrics remind me of Edward Cullen... there, call me a Twilight nerd, I don't care.
a big fan of the early works...some w h e r e i have a live version of ira covering john lennons cold turkey...

not my kind(?) from the 1st album was probably my fave...
I'm definitely down for talking more about Icehouse. This is my favorite band of all time. Have always been hooked on them since Electric Blue.
Love Man of Colours
It's always cold inside the icehouse, at least that's what the old ones say.

I'm rapidly becoming one of the old ones, and I remember when the album that featured that song came out, one of our local stations gave away a refrigerator (an "ice house" - meh).

Bill: Have you tried E-bay or the like? I've found a few CDs I wouldn't have otherwise gotten.
My favorite band of all times!! They were called Flowers early on. I had a friend that lived in Australia at the time and turned me on to them and I've loved them ever since. No matter who was in the line-up, the sound was pure magic. Can't get enough of "Primitive Man - wore out 3 CDs before getting an ipod ICEHOUSE RULES!!
wcmcalister
I wish they would get their self titled album. I enjoyed that entire album. It's been 20 years since I listened to it but I still find myself humming Fat Man.
would like to get in touch with people who are fanatical about the first two albums. also fanatical about the bands "twenty-twen t y " ( early LA power pop group) UFO (bluesy british hard rock group from the 70's) and early REM ( before Document album when they were alternative neo folk) anyone into these, leave me a contact on this Artist comment site and I'll get in touch with you. Peace
These lame music guide bios don't do the band justice at all. If you want an in-depth history of Icehouse, please visit the fan site:

And here's Iva Davies' own official site:

I wish Pandora would get some tunes off of Code Blue. That album completely rocks your socks. lol

All the songs on Man Of Colors are great.

My absolute favourite band! Iva is the best!!
