I’ve heard this song more than a few times over and over. I used to like INXS at one point in time, but somewhere they went so pulpy and unrecognizable with all the face change that the band slipped through the CDs. I don’t know yet if I like the entire song. There are some parts when it sounds positively screechy, but it’s got a lovely beat to it. Some google digging results in this information –
The meeting of Sona and INXS happened during the Aussie band’s India tour last year. “They liked my voice and were sure that it would complement JD Fortune’s,” says the marketing manager-turned-singer, adding that she is lucky to have worked with such a well-known band early in her career.
Lower your expectations before you hear the song though. It’s pop. It’s a slightly annoying arrangement. But for some reason, you keep playing it to figure out what exactly is so appealing. Maybe it’s the pop angst, or the nice twang in the background. I first heard it a few months back and forgot about it. But poking through YouTube brings me back to it.
