'Something in the Water', from Brooke Fraser's third album Flags, is a giddy, infectious love song with a rollicking country/folk setting. It was named Most Performed Song of the Year at the 2010 APRA Silver Scrolls. The partly animated video, made by the Special Problems team of Campbell Hooper and Joel Kefali, loosely recasts the song as Homer's Odyssey with a multi-costumed Fraser channelling Penelope — waiting for her Odysseus to return from across the water (but not above a playful poke of the tongue to lighten proceedings).
