Live ~ All Over You

All Over You is my favorite of songs by the rock group Live from their 1994 album, Throwing Copper.

Although the song was never released as a single in the US, it reached #33 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart, #1 on Billboard's Recurrent Airplay chart, #4 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks and #2 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart . . . #48 in the UK charts and #18 in Canada.

The following video clip of the song is from MTV's Unplugged . . . I remember seeing the show back in the day and it remains one of my favorites from the series.  Seeing the video again brought back fond memories of MTV the way it used to be.

All Over You | Lyrics

Writers: P. Dahlheimer, C. Gracey,
 E. Kowalczyk, C. Taylor 

our love is like water 

pinned down and abused 

for being strange 

our love is no other 

than me alone 

for me all day 

our love is like water/angels 

pinned down and abused 

all over you all over me 

the sun the fields the sky 

I've often tried to hold the sea 

the sun the fields the tide 

pay me now lay me down

INXS ~ Never Tear Us Apart

Never Tear Us Apart is a single (August 1988) from 
INXS' sixth studio album, Kick.

The music (written by Andrew Farriss) was given to Michael Hutchence 
who wrote the hauntingly beautiful lyrics for this sensuous ballad.

The original video was filmed in Prague, directed by Richard Lowenstein.

The song held on the UK charts for seven weeks, peaking at #24, 
while in the US it reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Never Tear Us Apart is thought of by many INXS fans as 
Michael Hutchence's anthem.  The song played in the background
 as his coffin was carried out of St. Andrews Cathedral after his death.

Another great musician
who left us way too soon

Never Tear Us Apart

Don't ask me

What you know is true

Don't have to tell you

I love your precious heart


I was standing

You were there

Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live

For a thousand years

But if I hurt you

I'd make wine from your tears

I told you

That we could fly

'Cause we all have wings

But some of us don't know why

I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart
