Today's Music Month Flashback is Greenstone by Emma Paki, produced by Neil Finn in 1995.

Released as the follow-up to Paki's acclaimed debut single System Virtue, Greenstone made it to number five on the local charts.

In the Kerry Brown-directed music video, Paki wears full colour and a fern head-dress, and sings about the power of pounamu, while actor Cliff Curtis plays a roadie adrift in the city in black and white.

When things go awry on K Road outside McDonalds, Curtis heads to the bush.
