My Music Monday
There are a parts of the group I truly liked, and parts that just became annoying to the Nth degree. And most of both of those categories were the lead singer, Michael Hutchinson.
Early INXS was good. Very good. I'm a big fan of their albums Shaboo Shoobah and the Swing. Today's selection was a coin toss between "Don't Change" and "Original Sin".
I kind of liked their disk, Listen Like Thieves. But I also noticed that is where, for me they started to decline. When they got to Kick, I was done. Their stupid-ass rhyme scheme on "Meditate" was so annoying - and the MTV overkill of "Need You Tonight", "Never Tear Us Apart" and "New Sensation"just grated on my last nerve.
I was also getting tired of Hutchinson's faux Jagger movements in everything he did. He was ok, but he was no Jagger.
That all said, I'm still fond of some of their songs, "Don't Change" being at the top of my list. It sits on all my various iPod / iPhone rotations.
Oddly, I'm not sure I've ever seen the video for this song - and maybe that's not a bad thing. The man kind of creeps me out.
