Suicide Blonde – INXS

  • First Appearance: September 22, 1990
  • Weeks on the Chart: 1
  • Album: X
  • Have I heard this song before (pre-listen)? No.
  • Have I actually heard this song before? Yes, of course I have.

I’m not sure how many times I’ve heard this song without having any idea what the lyrics were. Apparently a lot of times, because this song is instantly recognizable, but I had no idea what it was before I hit play.

I was really hoping to put a nail in the 80s, but INXS still being on the list and with The Cure being the next up, it looks like I have some time to go.

All that said, there’s something timeless about INXS, their little yelps of joy, and timelessly 80s aesthetic that you can’t be mad at. They are absolutely and 100% only ever themselves.
