My Music Monday
Erik loves INXS, so his own theme is gonna come back to bite him in the ass............thanks to me.
Now, I like INXS too. Like, not love. I own their music, but I can tell you this was the turning point for me.
I was fine.......for a while......with "I Need You Tonight", but after MTV played it for 7,402,882nd time (and that was just in the summer of '87), I was almost out.
I was totally out with the follow-up 'song', "Mediate", which I think "I Need You Tonight" just morphed into.
Lord, it takes it a step beyond 'cringe'.
Clearly someone got Michael Hutchence a rhyming dictionary and he used it for all it was worth. ...and then some.
And worse, someone got a guy in the band a Kenny G Sax™.
One might call the video an homage to Dylan (Bob, not Thomas). I might have thought that early on, but then I just scrapped that. You even have to figure Dylan was annoyed - had he ever watched this.
Ditto with the people at Websters.
