Interlude By Kirk Pengilly

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: SONGS THAT FEATURE WIND/WOODWIND INSTRUMENTS

Saxophone, Music, Neon, Jazz, Concert

It did not take me long to decide on the song I wanted to feature today. As this week is all about instrumentals really, I must mention the fabulous Kirk Pengilly who provides the fantastic saxophone interlude.

I find it really hard to believe this song only reached #24 in the UK charts. It’s just such a great track. Paloma Faith clearly thought so too, as she did an amazing cover of it (I have included her cover below…but it does not feature the saxophone). There is something very evocative and this music and the grand pauses – it almost smacks of an anthem.

In my opinion INXS really captured something exciting in this track. “Never Tear Us Apart” is such a dramatic and intense song. I do love it so!

Don't ask me
What you know is true
Don't have to tell you
I love your precious heart

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

I
(Don't ask me)
I was standing
(You know it's true)
You were there
(Worlds collided)
Two worlds collided
(We're shining through)
And they could never tear us apart

You
(Don't ask me)
You were standing
(You know it's true)
I was there
(Worlds collided)
Two worlds collided
(We're shining through)
And they could never tear us apart

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
