Not many artists can claim a successful chart run where they consistently charted on the Pop, Rock and Dance charts. INXS was a special band that connected with a wide audience.
I was listening to an old American Top 40 radio show a few weeks ago. Casey Kasem was introducing an INXS song and he told a story about their name. The band chose the big, block, bold 4-letter name because it stood out more on signs/posters/advertising. There was a lot of competition on the club circuit when the band was getting their start and they noticed that the bigger a band’s name was on the poster, the bigger the crowd they drew at the club. So, they shortened In Excess to INXS in order to be able to print their name in larger letters.
Without you, my heart is frantic, distant love can become tragic, when we touch, it’s so romantic, only you can work that magic, only you…can work that magic.
Forget about the bad times, Remember all the good times, Hold your head up high, And breakaway.

The Brief: I honestly never gave this record that much of a listen. I was just never really into Judas Priest, not that I strongly disliked them, they just weren’t ever really on my radar. This record came into my possession as a result of the college internship I did at Atlantic Records in 1988. […]

The Brief: Guest Blogger: Paul “Lovin’ You’s A Dirty Job” by Ratt sums up my three-decade relationship with this band. We’ve been together through the good, the bad and the ugly. I personally don’t think the band gets enough credit for producing a number of solid pop-metal anthems. And, it really frustrates me when Ratt […]
