INXS - Need You Tonight (Need You Tonight (7'' Single) (1987))

Written by: Michael Hutchence , Andrew Farriss

Liner Notes:

"1987 .We had finished touring "Listen Like Thieves" .We had started recording the next studio album ........"Kick". We took a short break.
I had written several pieces of music at home in Sydney. Michael was living in Hong Kong at the time. We had decided to get together in Hong Kong and song write. I had packed my bag and called a taxi to take me to the international airport. While the taxi was approaching I thought I'd just mess around musically for a little while on my 8 track. I suddenly found myself playing the riff and chords that eventually became "Need You Tonight". The taxi driver was oblivious to my creative urges and reminded me that unless I got in the cab I was going to miss my flight. I grabbed the demo and a rough cassette copy of the song and got in the cab.
Sunday 21st June. I flew to Hong Kong and drove to the Watson Estate where we were to spend the next 2 weeks writing. I met Michael and played him some of the music I had already written in Sydney. We listened to the different song ideas, including "Kick", "Need You Tonight" and others. As soon as he heard the music to "Need you Tonight" he immediately started writing the lyrics. Michael was always naturally gifted in his ability to articulate his thoughts poetically on paper.
"Need You Tonight" was our first world wide number one hit." -- Andrew Farriss

Lyrics:

Come over here
All you got is this moment
The twenty first century's yesterday
You can care all you want
Everybody does, yeah that's ok

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind

I need you tonight
'cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

So, how do you feel
I'm lonely
What do you think
Can't think at all
What cha gonna do
Gonna live my life

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind

I need you tonight
'cause I'm not sleeping
There's something about you girl
That makes me sweat

So, how do you feel
I'm lonely
What do you think
Can't think at all
What cha gonna do
Gonna live my life
How do you feel
I'm lonely

What do you think
Can't think at all
What cha gonna do
Gonna live my life

So slide over here
And give me a moment
Your moves are so raw
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
You're one of my kind
