Late Night Listening IX: Weird Dream Edition (or: Shanooz Shoobah )

I had a strange dream prior to waking up Tuesday morn. I dreamt that I was asked by INXS to be their stand-in lead singer for part of a concert. Most of the dream was spent worrying whether I'd get to do songs that I actually liked. I was hoping that they would let me do either this one:

or perhaps, to a lesser extent, this one:

I always found their earlier stuff (you know, back in the day when they were opening for Men at Work) so much more fun to listen to. I'll even go out on a limb and claim that "Don't Change" might be one of the few songs that seemed to embody all that was good about 80s music.

As the 80s drew to a close, it seemed like the band had started taking themselves way too seriously. So did REM for that matter, but that's another bad dream for another night. For now, I'll just let the commentariat puzzle out what the hell my dream was supposed to mean. I'm stumped.
