Radio XVII, side A, track 7: “What You Need” by INXS

INXS - What You NeedOh, INXS, sometimes I’ve got nothin’.  I’ve listened to this song again, I’ve nodded my head along to it, I’ve stared at the screen and the kinda creepy pic that goes with this post and I’m just stuck.  It’s a challenge sometimes, you know, INXS?  I mean, how many times can I write about how much I love a song?  Because truth be told, I love pretty much every song that I have on these tapes, and there’s probably 1500 songs or so that I need to write about eventually, and how do I write about a different song (or in this case, the same song) every day and talk about how much I love it without sounding like a broken record?  And does anyone even know what a broken record is anymore?  I don’t know, INXS, and I apologize that I didn’t have the inspiration this time to do your song justice, but luckily for all of us your music stands up just fine on its own.

“What You Need”

Hey
Here is the story

Forget about your troubles in life

Don’t you know
It’s not easy

When you gotta walk upon that line, ah ah ah-ah

That’s why

Sad and lonely
Ya need a change from what ya do all day

Ain’t no sense
All yer cryin’
Pick it up and throw it into shape, oo-oo yeah

This is whatcha need
I’ll give you whatcha need, yeah

This is not the end of it all

Don’t you see
