One of two INXS songs in this countdown, Burn For You was lifted from their very excellent album, The Swing. I must say that I was never a massive fan of INXS but that album (and the cutdown cassette version – Deka-Dance) certainly got some airtime in our place. Quite a lengthy track (over five minute us), it carries you through to the end still wanting more – that is the sign of a great song, in my opinion. If you haven’t listened to it for a while … in the words of the great Molly Meldrum … do yourself a favour.
