Day Eleven – A Song From My Favorite Band:
Uhm. Yeah … INXS is my favorite band. Ever. I’d say that it was all because of Michael Hutchence, but then explain to me why I’m still going to see them in concert at the end of July? (I. Can’t. Wait !!! )
I don’t know … there’s something about their music that makes me smile. It brings up lots of memories for me whenever I hear one of their songs.
Like whenever I hear “The One Thing,” I think of buying Star Hits magazines back in 1983 and watching that video on MTV (again, back when they actually played music videos!) with my cousin.
Or whenever I hear “What You Need” … I think of every single cheesy high school dance I had ever gone to.
“Disappear” is inherently a happy song; both in lyrics and in the music. I’m thinking that’s why, when the album “X” was released during my second year of college, it suddenly became our dorm room floor’s drinking song. Yep; that and the B-52’s “Roam.”
(What is it about reminiscing my college days lately?)
We were SO lucky to meet the band in 1986, before they blew up BIG
This, by no means, is my absolute favorite INXS song. I have waaaay too many favorite INXS songs to choose from. “Disappear” just happens to be a great song.
Besides I like this video. And I can no longer find the original “Don’t Change” video … which would otherwise have been posted for today’s song.
What is with this 30-day song challenge?
What was yesterday’s song?
