When He Says He's Lonely- He MEANS It
When this song starts you're immediately in to it. It's got such a dynamic feel to it that just draws you in like a magnet. The tickling little guitar keeps things going and there's these weird synth sounds that add to the clean atmosphere. The lead singer's vocals are just gritty enough and have just enough sex appeal. Who know why the poor guy committed suicide, when he had so much going for him and he's obviously one of the hip crowd- not fat, not a geek or anything else negative. It just goes to show we all have our tough times and our bad days. Friends of his have said this was just a low point for him and it's an understatement, but it's just a shame the suicide was more than an attempt and actually killed him. Although, whether the suicide was intentional or an accident is still only speculative.
In 2005, the band participated in the reality show Rock Star: INXS, where they found a new lead singer to take Michael Hutchence's place.
This was a great band in its day and their album "Kick" is truly a classic. The video showcases the band in a unique way with its play on black and white and cut-out band members looking a bit like paper dolls. Aside from that, there's not too much to say about it, but the video did the job which was to showcase the band and the song.
