Flashback Friday

Friday Flashback 1987.

O.k I feel ashamed. I'm Aussie and I haven't posted any Australian songs and yet there are so many I remember from the year 1987, Kylie Minogue, Locomotion; Ice House, Electric Blue and Crazy; John Farnham, Pressure Down; Midnight Oil, Beds are Burning and Hoodoo Gurus, What's My Scene.

So today's Flashback Friday is from INXS. I first took noticed of the band with theirĀ Kick album. Hit after hit of songs we still enjoy today. I taped much of their music from the radio, stopping right on cue before the radio announcer spoke from Take 40 (fist pump moment).

I chose two songs to make up for my lack of Aussie music pride. Click either one to listen.

Need you tonight

New Sensation

INXS, Kick

Album design: Nick Egan- art direction & design, Grant Matthews- photography.


Next week I have a another popular Aussie so stay tuned. Have a great weekend and if your shopping, don't forget to check out my Christmas gift ideas for everyone. Have a great weekend everyone!

    Looooove INXS! I’m a huge fan from waaaay back! Seen them in concert too, MH just owned that stage – had all us girls swooning!!! Love the INXS movie that’s been repeated again – such a tragic ending but love how the movie brought them back on the charts again!! Well deserved. They don’t make me like that anymore

      Michael is so sexy and the guy who played him in the TV series is a cutie too! How awesome you saw the band in concert; if I can go back in time to 1991, I’d be at the Wembley.
