Inxs


That particular band is on my mind alot lately. Perhaps it is because I was sucked into that reality show and watch it faithfully, no matter if the world is about to end.

They color my high school and college memories with top 10 hits and top 40 air play as I sped around in my VW Cabrio with the top down, air whipping through my hair, excited about all that life had to offer and all of what was to come.

Here I sit, dear reader, looking at the window and listening to the rain fall yet again this morning and the eery, soul haunting voice of Michael Hutchence plays on my ipod and seems to lock up my soul and take back to a place where it was truly happy. Interestingly enough, the song that is playing is both dark, yet promising, melancholy, yet hopeful.

It's called "Never Tear Us Apart" and it goes something like this:

Don't ask me
What you know is true
Don't have to tell you
I love your precious heart
I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

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

I told you
That we could fly
'Cause we all have wings
But some of us don't know why

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart

If you are not familiar with the band, I suggest you get to know them. The lyrics that have been written from this Aussie gentlemen are incredible and dare I say it, life changing, asserting, altering, whatever the hell you'd want to call it...I call it rock and roll. Even more interesting is the way in which the lead singer died, autoerotic asphixiation...now that my dear reader, is a sick ticket.

Ya know what I say? Let your freak flag fly because I know it's only rock and roll but, I like it.

Micheal had this smoldering sexuality to him, sahme on his accidental death, I loved INXS too...


So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind

I need you tonight
'Cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

How do you feel
I'm lonely
What do you think
Can't take it all
Whatcha gonna do
Gonna live my life


brings back some bittersweet memories...
