19 days of songs from the ‘90s: Day 13

Aussie Make-Up Day

IMG_20160809_153921I considered doing an Australia/New Zealand installment last week for my immensely popular and critically acclaimed “International Favourites” series, but I could only think of three ’90s albums from the region that I really liked and those were all Neil Finn-related. Had I opted to list singles instead, there would have been more variety and “Beautiful Girl” by INXS would have placed high. One of the last North American hits with Michael Hutchence, it’s just a lovely tune, and atypically understated for this group, from its delicate piano intro to the slow-fade organ note at the end. (P.S. Remember the reality show Rock Star: INXS? I watched every single episode. Why, I don’t know, but I still say Jordis was robbed!)

INXS — “Beautiful Girl”
