Can't Get You Off My Mind

Album: The Key To The Universe (2015)
  • Michael Des Barres is best known for his acting, with roles on the TV shows Macgyver, Bones, Just Shoot Me and many others. He's also an accomplished musician who fronted the band Silverhead in the '70s and took over for Robert Palmer in The Power Station in 1985, earning him an appearance at Live Aid.

    The Key To The Universe is his third solo album, filled with what he calls "carnal, sensual, sexy blues music."
  • In our interview with Michael Des Barres, he talked about how this track relates to his life: "Most of my life has been lived obsessively, excessively and at a pace that kept me moving towards a moving target."

    This is fitting, since he co-wrote the Animotion hit "Obsession."
  • Linda Perry wrote this song. A member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, her compositions include "Wonderful Life" for Gwen Stefani and "The Long Way Around" for Dixie Chicks.
