one of my favorite songs EVER ever ever ever is “never tear us apart” by INXS. aside from the song being amazing, it reminds me of my mother. i know that i’ve boasted about loving her musical taste that she raised me on as a child before, so i’ll spare you that repeat schpeel. some songs just pull at my heart strings when it comes time to her/music, and that album is one of those thangs.
in addition to the adoration that i have for this album via mom, sometimes just fall into this INXS “Kick” kick, and i can’t shake it for weeks (yesterday it started up again). that album is so amazing and i get so teary eyed thinking that michael hutchence is no longer with us.
the last time that i saw this video was on VH1 “pop-up video”, and it had to be at least a decade ago. on my walk to and from dunkin just now, i was listening to this song and realized while i was walking, that the weather today is just like in that video. foggy, rainy, chilly, and i was walking along side a cemetery that runs up the avenue by my apartment and it just reminded me of the video’s setting. so i watched it… you should also.
this video seriously makes me fight off sadness, it’s hard for me to watch it, he was so perfectly beautiful. when he died, his coffin was carried out of the church with this song playing in the background, that makes me even sadder.</3
if i ever get married, i’m walking down the aisle to this song, and it will be my wedding song for sure. i nearly died of jealousy and astonishment when they had it at blair’s wedding to that french price dude. seriously, who stole my idea?! they had an orchestra playing it, there was no lyrics, but they shortened the song by cutting out the sax solo, which was perfect.
. . .
after watching the video, i fell down a wikipedia/articles wormhole and found out a bunch of shit about michael hutchence. i remember thinking about how when i was younger, people thought when he died, he died of some perverted asphyxiation thing. while he did die by choking to death by his belt, the coroner said it wasn’t erotic at all, just a mixture of depression, booze and pills that led him to what happened that night.
tl;dr – he was super upset that he couldn’t have his daughter and his girlfriend’s kids for the holidays, and his choice of girlfriend was completely awful.
i never knew all of the problems that he was having in life up to that point. the worst things were that he got injured to the point that he couldn’t smell or taste anymore, which severely depressed him and the last straw was that he got mixed up in a horrible mess of a relationship with a groupie/tv host named paula yates. if the vast internet isn’t lying, inxs’s management tried to keep her far away from him… but she managed to have him eventually anyway. heavy drugs and cheating, etc. – just a horrible mess.
such a shame.

i was singing this to myself while i was doing my hair before. i haven’t thought of this song in ages… it reminds me of high school days. and then i figured, “where not a better place to put this filth than on my website”…
i saw them with goldfinger at irving plaza one year, it was such a good show. hmm, i wonder if they still tour… i wonder if goldfinger still tours o_o
SPEAKING OF OLD BANDS TOURING
my amazeballs ex-boyfriend steve bought us tickets to the the descendents, h2o and the suicide machines. (mostly psyched about the suicide machines because they’re reunited recently!)

ricky’s friend randy showed me this song recently after i had mentioned the lemonheads’ version was stuck in my head… i love this song and love love love this cover, and i can’t wait for scott’s new solo album to come out because it’s all cover songs. and i’m especially curious as to how his “but not tonight” cover sounds. that’s one of my top 5 favorite depeche mode songs.
