Never Tear Us Apart? @INXS

We could live
for a thousand years
But if I hurt you
I’d make wine from your tears

I told you
That we all can fly
Cos we all have wings
But some of us don’t know why


The gorgeous but seriously tragic Michael Hutchence such a loss.

I love that song, full of passion and desperately inspirational.

Would you believe that it’s almost 30 years since the Kick album launched their career from being largely unknown except in Oz to worldwide giants?

Great lyrics and melodies throughout the album but its the mix by legendary Bob Clearwater that made the riffs, vocals and beat stand out from everything else at the time.

A fantastic album with six singles all of which made the UK charts.  Devil Inside, Suicide Blonde, Need You Tonight,  New Sensation, Mystify and of course Never Tear Us Apart.

It was one of the first CDs that I bought and was played constantly and throughout every bar in Glasgow at the time.

Give it another listen on one of the remaster special editions,  you won’t regret it.

The video for Never Tear Us Apart was filmed at various locations in Prague including the old town square,  the castle and the beautiful Charles Bridge with its bounding gothic statues.

Prague looks like a stunning medieval city which has retained its architecture largely because it was protected  by being part of the communist block.

I’m really looking forward to walking those same streets tomorrow.
