"Wish You Well" is the first single from Bernard Fanning's solo debut album Tea and Sympathy, released in 2005 and was voted number 1 on the Triple J Hottest 100 of 2005.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Wish You Well" was directed by Damon Escott and Stephen Lance of Head Pictures and won best music video at the ARIA awards in 2006.

The video clip starts with Fanning sitting adjacent to antiques, one including a gramophone. After standing up he holds a portrait of the forest.

Interesting musicality[edit]

In 2005 in an interview with Triple J, Bernard Fanning revealed that they smashed plates in the studio to create an interesting snare sound which can be heard very faintly on every second snare hit throughout the song. "We tried using hand claps and tambourines, but the sound wasn't quite 'right', so we ended up using the smashing plates."
