At number 65 in BBC Radio 2’s list of the 100 greatest guitar riffs is “Need You Tonight” by INXS. It has an infectious guitar riff and driving rhythm, and was the break-through song from this Australian band, catapulting them and their lead singer Michael Hutchence to super-stardom. Hutchence, who became the partner of Bob Geldof’s estranged wife Paula Yates, died in 1997 under tragic circumstances having apparently hung himself. There is some controversy whether this was suicide, or an “autoerotic asphyxiation” event gone wrong (as later claimed by Yates).

All you got is this moment
Twenty-first century’s yesterday
You can care all you want
Everybody does yeah that’s okay

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I’ve got to let you know
I’ve got to let you know
You’re one of my kind

I need you tonight
‘Cause I’m not sleeping
There’s something about you girl
That makes me sweat

How do you feel
I’m lonely
What do you think
Can’t think at all
Whatcha gonna do
Gonna live my life

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I’ve got to let you know
I’ve got to let you know
You’re one of my kind

I need you tonight
‘Cause I’m not sleeping
There’s something about you girl
That makes me sweat

So how do you feel
I’m lonely
What do you think
Can’t think at all
Whatcha gonna do
Gonna live my life

So how do you feel
I’m lonely
What do you think
Can’t think at all
Whatcha gonna do
Gonna live my life

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I’ve got to let you know
I’ve got to let you know

So slide over here
And give me a moment
I’ve got to let you know
I’ve got to let you know

You’re one of my kind
