"Peachy" is a song by Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins and the third single released from her second album, On A Clear Night. The track features a guest appearance by Neil Finn playing electric guitar. The single was released on 10 November 2007 as a digital download only. At the ARIA Music Awards of 2008 Higgins was nominated for Best Female Artist for this single.[2]


In 2004, Higgins released the song "Ten Days" which documented her feelings following a break-up with her boyfriend before she travelled to Europe after leaving high school. Though they later reconciled, the relationship ended and subsequently inspired the lyrics for "Peachy".[3] The song was written in half an hour at a friend's house where Higgins locked herself in a room with a guitar.[3] She said of the song, "[i]t's all those mind games you play with someone you've just broken up with [...] They're pretending they've moved on; you're pretending you have, too, but neither of you has. It's ridiculous."[3]

The song was recorded in 2006 in Los Angeles at producer Mitchell Froom's home studio. The music video was directed and shot by Australian filmmakers Paul Goodman and Alice Bell.[4]


"Peachy" was released for digital download only on 10 November 2007.[4] "Peachy" was voted the number 51 song in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2007 and was included on the 2008 compilation CD Triple J's Hottest 100 Volume 15.
