I Hope I Never, Tim Finn’s soaring ballad, was a 1980s hit for iconic Kiwi band Split Enz. The guide compares the original song with Eddie Rayner’s ENZSO orchestration, and is packed with well-written activities centered on the song, the album, the band, and the composer and arranger. The score contains the original chart and orchestration.

This revised version was adapted for study at NCEA Level 1.
