Radio XXIII, side B, track 1: “Need You Tonight” by INXS, #10 on The Top 88 of ’88

INXS - One Of My KindOh, INXS, before we get to congratulating you on not only having yet another song on the countdown, I wanted to point something out that I’m sure your eagle eyes probably already noticed.  Where’s #11 on the countdown?  I’ve captured every single song that’s been on the countdown, so what gives?  Here’s the thing, INXS, I technically did record #11, but I only got about 30 seconds of it, because I was at the end of side A but there was still a bunch of tape left, and I tried fast-forwarding real quick to get to side B and start recording again. . .it was a whole thing.  So my apologies to Robert Palmer for not featuring “Simply Irresistible”, which was indeed #11 on the countdown and is indeed awesome, but if you’d like to listen to it, INXS, you can check out my original post about it.

So, where were we?  Oh, right.  #10!  We’re in the home stretch, INXS!  At this point, I may have been hallucinating a little bit.  I’d had very little to eat or drink all day, but there were only 9 songs left.  There was no way I was going to give up now.  The absolute best songs were on their way!  And this was one of them!  My mind was alive with excitement, trying to figure not just who would be next, but who would be BEST.  You guys were close, INXS, but obviously, if the #1 song was better than this one, it had to be amazing!  Are you as excited as I am?!!?

“Need You Tonight”
