Song of the Day: 'Never Tears Us Apart' by INXS


I always forget how much I like INXS until their music comes on, like this epic single from 1987. Now that I'm 54, singer Michael Hutchence's death at 37 seems all the more tragic. Am grateful I got to see him twice on "The Swing" tour back in 1984 -- opening for the Go-Go's at Pine Knob in Detroit. We could tell the Aussies were going to become huge -- "The One Thing" and "Don't Change" had already made them MTV stars. And sure enough, by time Hutchence died in 1997, his band had sold over 75 million records.
