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, MH was so perfectly beautiful. MH’s coffin was carried out of the church where his funeral was held 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.
also/fun fact: i remember always thinking when i was younger that MH died of some weird perverted asphyxiation thing (which is true, he died being choked by his belt), but i never knew all of the problems that he was having in life up to that point. he got mixed up in a horrible mess with that disgusting peaches geldof’s groupie of a mother (who died, overdosed on heroin, shocker…). such a sad, sad shame.
