Five on Friday Set 25

I knew what I wanted to do this week for Set 25 as I was putting together Set 24 last week.  Today I share the incomparable voice of Michael Hutchence fronting one of the all time great bands, INXS.

JD Fortune won the Rock Star INXS competition in 2004 and briefly took over the vocals for the band from 2005 to 2008.  I appreciated the music made during those years.

But for me, there really is only one sound for the group and that's Hutchence's vocals over a funk/new wave groove.

  1. INXS rocks! wonderful song choices, Travis.

  1. BTW, I wished they would have chosen Marty Casey instead of JD Fortune for the lead of INXS. They would have gone really far had they done that! JD was just not a good fit!

  1. Woo! INXS! Love them! They were with me on my Sony walkman as I bopped around Toronto in the late 80's.

  1. Jamie says:

    I've always enjoyed the layering of INXS back grounds to the voice. The rhythms are always unique in each song.

  1. Linda says:

    This is what I love about this meme - someone reminds you of music that you forgot you really liked and brings it back to the forefront! I used to love to listen to INXS and now I do again!

    I've got a Maroon 5 on Friday this week!

  1. Always enjoyed the older INXS over the songs done after Fortune joined...Nicely done

  1. Trav: Didn't recognize a thing, but I stopped in to check anyway. I guess my comments on Friday are sort of like "Gilroy was here." So hiya, anyway.

    I know he was a 'bad boy' but Michael was so beautiful!

    Great choices Trav.

  1. The only INXS I've heard has been stuff on the radio from back when they were big. I do remember the guy's voice, thoguh.

  1. I am dancing in the castle. Thank you!

    Great choice.

    And I'm finally playing. I feel terrible that I haven't did a single 5 on Friday yet. It's such a great idea.

  1. OOPs,I thought that I had left a comment.I enjoyed listing to your set,good choices!
