Don’t Change – INXS (1982) FLAC Remaster HD Video

“Don’t Change” was released on INXS’s third studio album, Shabooh Shoobah in October 1982. Not much to say about this one, it’s my favorite track from an album that I played to death back when it was released….it’s still my favorite INXS album.

I’m pushing this one out right on top of my last video upload (for the band’s “Never Tear Us Apart” https://youtu.be/Pa_KLJml74k …this was the older INXS track I mentioned being sidetracked from) mainly because one of my great friends was unable to view that one in his country…and that’s not right!!! ;-)……this one’s for you Wolvi! Epileptic or seizure warnings are probably in order…the video is like an explosion in a paint factory!….didn’t quite get the thing looking how I wanted (some of the transitions are a tad fast….but it’s close enough for free! đŸ˜‰ Hope you enjoy….thanks for watching!

“Don’t Change” barely cracked the top 30 in the US….criminal that it wasn’t at least Top 10 cause it’s a really great tune!

It peaked at No. 5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and remained on the chart for 94 weeks. It was the band’s first album to be released worldwide and appeared on the United States Billboard 200 and on the Hot Pop Albums Chart. The album spawned four singles, “The One Thing” (July 1982), “Don’t Change” (October), “To Look at You” (March 1983) and “Black and White” (June). It was produced by Mark Opitz for WEA Australia with most tracks written by band members, Andrew Farriss and Michael Hutchence.

The song “Don’t Change” became a popular cover. It has been covered by The Audreys, The Bravery, Everclear, Face to Face, Goo Goo Dolls, Grinspoon, AFI and also most recently by Lazlo Bane. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band covered this song during their 2014 world tour. “Don’t Change” plays during the credits of the movie Adventureland and is featured in its soundtrack. “The One Thing” is featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories under the fictional radio station Flash FM.

The name “Shabooh Shoobah” is an onomatopoeia of a rhythm in an INXS song “Spy of Love”, hummed by Michael Hutchence in the recording studio.

[Lyrics]
I’m standing here on the ground
The sky above won’t fall down
See no evil in all direction
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark
For too long
Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me
I found a love I had lost
It was gone for too long
Hear no evil in all directions
Execution of bitterness
Message received loud and clear
Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me
I’m standing here on the ground
The sky above won’t fall down
See no evil in all directions
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark for too long
Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me
