i must be one of the few that doesn't especially like the new mix. but this has been my absolute favorite U2 song from the SECOND i first heard it. the lyrics, just...everything. and then when i noticed bono dedicating it to hutch each time they played it...i just fell a bit more in love with it. if you listen to the inxs song elegantly wasted (hutch wrote it after a night out talking to bono), you can hear so many similarities. they were written at the same time, and it's basically like two different points of view of the same situation.

This is a bit off U2, but your comment re: Michael Hutchense reminded me that I saw a commercial the other day for a new reality show where INXS is basically auditioning for a new singer.

ugh, yeah. everytime i hear or think about that show i cringe and want to meet hte band just to yell at them. and that's saying alot seeing as they're my second favorite band. each time the commercial is on and i'm in another room, i get excited cause hutch is on, then i'm like...oh. it's just....wrong and bad on so many levels. i could go on, but my icon says enough.

Yes, INXS so rock. I was just as shocked and upset when hutch committed suicide as Bono says he was in "Into the Heart" when discussing SIAMYCGOO.
I really miss hearing their music on the countdown, but a new singer? Bad idea!

After all this time, I still have a hard time listening to their music; it's such a bittersweet experience trying to reconcile the vibrance and life that was a part of the music with Hutchense's suicide.

I'd hate to have to make the kind of choice INXS had to make: go the way of Led Zeppelin and say "without him, there is no band" or the way of Van Halen and say "all the other elements are still here, we just need a new singer". Either way, they lose. Even so, it makes me sad more than anything else to think of INXS without Michael at the mic - it can never be the same; it can never be as good.

I agree.
For two solid weeks after his death, I couldn't listen to anything except INXS because it felt disrespectful (that's not the word, but something like that) and for the longest time, I knew it was a murder because his music was always so positive. It was really difficult to come to grips with.
Still, I think going the way of Led Zeppelin is the better choice, but hey, I'm not in the band so it's not my call.
