"—" denotes items which were not released in that country or failed to chart.
Notes:
  • A ^ "World Where You Live" was released in Netherlands and USA after "Don't Dream It's Over" in 1987. "Now We're Getting Somewhere" was released in New Zealand after "Don't Dream It's Over" and "Something So Strong" in 1987.
  • B ^ AUS chart peaks for these singles are taken from the Kent Report chart, which was licensed as the ARIA Chart until June 1988. ARIA Chart peaks beyond No. 50 are extremely difficult to obtain prior to January 1990.
  • C ^ "Never Be the Same" charted on US Mainstream Rock Tracks due to radio airplay, it wasn't released as a proper single in the US
  • D ^ "Fall at Your Feet" re-entered the UK charts on 10 May 2008 due to download sales of the track after Per Diem cover version on Britain's Got Talent.

Crowded House song covers[edit]

Covers performed by Crowded House[edit]

Crowded House themselves frequently perform a version of the Hunters and Collectors' "Throw Your Arms Around Me" and Paul Kelly's "Leaps and Bounds" during their live sets (including at the ARIA Music Awards of 1997 ceremony, inducting Kelly into the Hall of Fame). Their version of The Zombies' "She's Not There" was used on the soundtrack of The Crossing, a 1990 film starring Russell Crowe.[20] In addition to these, the group often would perform The Beatles' "Rocky Raccoon", among many other Beatles songs. The group would also often perform Irish folk traditional piece "The Parting Glass". As the group rose from the ashes of Split Enz, they often performed various Split Enz songs, in particular "This Is Massive" because it was written by Paul Hester for Split Enz's last album, the only studio album he performed on.
