Classic Rock Bottom

This Encore show from 2006 continues with INXS, a band that featured three brothers- not unusual in Rock & Roll.
They had a nice fusion of Rock and Dance music.
Unfortunately, a series of serious missteps led to the band's downward spiral.
Michael Hutchence was found dead in his Sydney hotel room, the victim of an apparent hanging.
A few others were recruited as Lead Singer, and in 2005 they came up with the ridiculous idea of finding one on a reality show.
The winner was J.D. Fortune, a former Elvis impersonator from Canada, who had a cocaine habit.
Nice pick!
To close out the show, a song more suitable for Memorial Day than Veterans Day.
But I wanted to play it so much I went with it, and have played it again since 2006.
It's a beauty.
To ALL Veterans, a hearty Salute and a heartfelt Thank You- God Bless You For Your Service!

So, never shy with your opinion, Never Tear Us Apart is hands down their best song, lol!
Suicide Blond, I hadn't heard this either since I did the show!
And I accidentally played your second favorite INXS song, Disappear.
I had better luck with you than with Jon, lol!
And nice to see it was an easy pick for the Golden Pell, with Let Them In by John Gorka.
Just a beautiful song.
Your good taste prevails over Jon's worrisome distaste for America and the Military, LOL!
Thanks for the listen and writing, hope it's getting easier,

You're not supposed to eat a half container of chip dip, plus the chips, in one sitting, ESPECIALLY if it expired, LOL!
No wonder your stomach was churgling and doing loopy-loops, but just one suicide run to the bathroom? You got off easy, lol!
Sorry I didn't play your song, only had an hour.
That J.D. Fortune thing, I didn't care from the beginning.
You didn't like the last song as a song, but as a tribute to the Veterans, you did like it.
Yeah, that makes sense- you were touched by the lyrics, not the tune.
Although I can't understand why you didn't like both.
You unpatriotic slob expired chip dip eater, LOL!
Thanks for writing and listening,

1. New Sensation - Cool song.  I like the way they use the lyric "live, baby live" as the title to their live album, but with the word live pronounced differently.  

2. Never Tear Us Apart - Hands down their best song.

3. Suicide Blond - Haven't heard this in quite a while.  Very cool song.

4. Disappear - Haven't heard this in a long time either.  My second favorite INXS song.

5. Deliver Me - Never heard this.  It's average.

6. Let Them In by John Gorka - This is one beautiful track.  It's an easy pick for the Golden Pell.

I has a new sensation when I bought some chip dip from Walmart a couple days ago and after eating about half of it, I noticed that it had expired two weeks previous. "New sensation" indeed. 

Of course, I felt like it was tearing me apart. My stomach was churgling and doing loopy-loops. So I did a suicide run to the bathroom and eventually the churgling and loopy loops disappeared. Let's just say I delivered a rather hot and syrupy present.

Nope, that one song wasn't played. Oh, well.

J.D. Fortune was kicked out, let back in, maybe kicked out again and then let back in again. At that time I don't think anyone really cared anymore. 

I didn't particularly like the last song as a song, but as a tribute to the Veterans, I liked it. Does that make any sense? Do you know whut I'm sayin'?
