Communication
by INXS

Album: Welcome To Wherever You Are (1992)
  • INXS frontman Michael Hutchence explains the song's meaning: "It ended up being more about this guy, a crazed journalist not wanting to leave a scene he was reporting from in the Persian Gulf War. I mean, these people were standing there with gas masks on, reporting history as it happened. I don't think it has been done before, quite like that. And then the ads would come in between, 'Buy this and that,' Weird stuff."
