Convene Spins: Private Universe

As the roller-rink DJs (used to) say: We're gonna slow things down now -- with "Private Universe," by Crowded House. This is a contemplative, almost haunting song (with an appropriately trippy video, as you'll see above), and a personal one, too, so the challenge is making it evocative in a group setting. I'd suggest taking full advantage of its sedate, thoughtful qualities by using it during small-group brainstorming sessions or elegant dinners, or, possibly, to help set the mood for a particularly introspective keynote. But for that last option, you'd want to be careful about not killing the energy level in the room.
