Australia Finest.... INXS One of the greatest band of the '80s with a list of smash hits. Formed in the late '70s ...International Superstars by the late '80s INXS defined the '80s decade. Never comfortably fit in with New Wave,even when the band branched out into Synth Pop in there early recordings. INXS started in Perth, Australia but..Did'nt call there self INXS untill they moved to Sydney, and began to play the Pub circuit. The Band featured three brothers..The Farriss Brothers-Andrew,Tim & Jon. INXS landed a Australian record contract, releasing an eponymous debut on Deluxe in 1980. it was'nt untill 1983,INXS got an contract from an American record label Atco Record. Thus spawned the U.S. debut release Shabooh Shabooh which featured the hit single "Don't Change". Which made INXS minor new wave stars. INXS did'nt have a genuine mainstream breakthrough untill 1985's, Listen Like Thieves climbed to no. 11 in the U.S. thanks to the hit single "What You Need" . Listen Like Thieves laid the groundwork for..KICK the album that made INXS international superstars. Released in 1987, KICK was an Multi-Platinum selling album. INXS called it quits in 1997 after the death of Michael Hutchence(RIP)


Here's My Favorite All-Time INXS Songs:

"Kiss The Dirt"(Falling Down The Mountain

"Don't Change"

"The One Thing"

Are there any fan of INXS in the house? and if so what's your fav INXS song?.....

I went to:

www.inxs.com and tried looking it up, but none of those titles sounded right...now it is going to drive me crazy.

I just heard it on the radio not long ago too.

Hey, there Ms. EA....how are you doing???

I know Do what you do, and that's not it.

I can hum it pretty good, but that doesn't do anyone on here any good, to be able to help me out. [Frown] [Confused]

I heard stories that they were reuniting with a different singer. True or not?

I wasn't a major fan of them, but I liked INXS.

On the other hand, I really don't want them reuniting with someone else! It just wouldn't be the same. [Frown]

I figured it out!!!

It is:

Your so Fine....

I think that's the name...

It goes...your so fine, loose my mind, and the world seems to disappear....

It "clicked" in my head on the way to get my son from school....

now if I could come up with the other song...geez.

not everybody,
i like all kinds of rock, and i think INXS has great music.... i don't think of it as wuss rock, it's more alt. 80s stuff... or pop, if you will.

C.T. I listen to all kinds of music and INXS is right up the alley. It is true several Rewinders enjoy the Metal, but several of us love groups like INXS, The Cure, & The Psychedelic Furs. So keep posting about the music you enjoy.

You cannot forget INXS' contribution to the Lost Boys Soundtrack either. Without a doubt one of the finest soundtracks ever released.

INXS are still going sadly.
They performed a few times with Terance Trent D'arby of all people, and then Jon Stevens, who was the lead singer of another 80's Aussie band Noiseworks.
My favorite songs are "Suicide Blonde", "Baby don't cry", "Disappear" (You're so fine, blew my mind, and the world seems to dissapear. All of the problems, all of the fears, and the world seems to disappear. Doo doodoo doo doo, doo doodoo doo doo, doo doodoo doodoo doo", and "Beautiful Girl". These are all from the 90's actually when I think about it.
