INXS – the devil inside (Leaping Ahead #114)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #114: 160423

[Song from a band beginning with I]

Written by Andrew Farriss and Michael Hutchence, this is one of INXS’s best known songs. It was released as a single in February 1988 and was most successful in the US, going to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks but held out of the top spot by a combination of “Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car” by Billy Ocean and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” by Whitney Houston. “Devil Inside” then went on to peak at No. 47 in the UK, No. 20 in France, No. 25 in Ireland and No. 6 in Australia.
