Arguably INXS at its finest right here. There’s not much more to say – a move away from some of the “new wave” feel that much of the earlier INXS stuff displayed to a more mature and almost orchestral feel. It has become the pre-match anthem for the Port Adelaide side in the AFL – that’s unfortunate for those of us who don’t follow that team – but it demonstrates its popularity in a similar way to Liverpool’s You’ll Never Walk Alone. Great tune.
