To make it even creepier, lead singer Michael Hutchence is virtually whispering the lyrics and chorus. It’s a tad more upbeat and flavorful than most Devil songs, and it fits nicely as a sugar rush from the bitter hemlocky taste the other tunes will leave. Plus there’s a deep dark side to INXS, as Hutchence killed himself in a hotel room using his own belt.
Make sure you listen closely for the backwards chant at about 3:45 in.
