Now playing: INXS - "Never tear us apart"

One of the greatest love songs ever IMHO. The lyrics are pure poetry, not even rhyme but just ... spot on.

I told you that we could fly
'cause we all have wings
But some of us don't know why

(refering to the power of love very likely)

The video was shot in Prague in 1988, back when the Iron Curtain was still standing.
Having lived in Prague myself 10 years ago, the video fascinates me and adds extra spice to an already fantastic song. I can only imagine how it must have felt like living in Prague before the fall of the Iron Curtain, when the outside world seemed out of reach ; and how it must have felt for the band, traveling to what might have seemed a different world.

Michael Hutchence was a fantastic singer, very charismatic and vocally very gifted (watch some INXS live footage on YouTube). His suicide was such a tragedy (obviously any suicide is a tragedy). The remaining band members should have folded INXS straight after his death instead of trying to go on with other singers. Replacing a singer is tough, replacing an icon close to impossible.
