Given that “Need You Tonight” is such a slinky, poppy come-on of a song, the lyrics don’t need to be half as intriguing as they are. Consider the manic internal dialogue of the bridge, complete with two different voices (“What do you think? CAN’T THINK AT ALL!”). And of all the more base things Michael Hutchence has surely got to let you know, “you’re one of my kind” always struck me as surprisingly lofty. I’m sure it worked for him.

Videowise, love the well-timed sliding, could do without the air drumming.

BONUS: The bookend to this, you may recall, is the Dylan-inspired “Mediate” video, below.
