Nick Sampson wrote Netherworld Dancing Toys' big hit 'For Today' during a summer spent working at a Taranaki freezing works. His love song has become a classic — aided in no small part by Annie Crummer's soaring guest vocal. The TVNZ video, directed by Radio With Pictures producer Brent Hansen, places the band in a studio (where Crummer sings with Kim Willoughby, as she would do in ensemble When the Cat's Away) and on the Cook Strait ferry. The ferry shoot was nearly derailed when lunch in a Picton pub almost led to the band missing the return sailing.
I just opened my mouth and this demon came out.– – Annie Crummer on her vocal on 'For Today', in radio show Give it a Girl
