Radio 54, side B, track 7: “What You Need” by INXS

INXS - What You NeedOh, INXS, this didn’t make it onto the countdown?!?!  No kidding.  I mean, it’s not end of the world or anything, plus you did have one song featured on the countdown already.  But even though this song wasn’t officially on the countdown, it does speak to this song’s awesomeness that the DJ deemed it worthy of being an “extra” to be played amongst all the other classic tunes that did make it onto the countdown.  And I have a soft spot for you guys anyway since you were one of the first bands that not only did I record off the radio but then blogged about when I first started this weird little venture.  I really don’t have much else to say about this one other than that it’s still as awesome now as it was when I listened to it repeatedly all those years ago.  So even though this song isn’t technically #29 on the countdown, it will always be #29 in my heart.

“What You Need”
