BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
“Original Sin” is a hit single by Australian rock group INXS released in 1984 on their fourth album The Swing. It was written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Farriss, and produced by Nile Rodgers.
It was released as a single in the U.S. in December 1983, where it reached No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984. In Australia, it reached No. 1 in 1984., and became an international hit during that year.
Singer Daryl Hall sings the chorus along with Hutchence. According to an interview done in Australia, Hall says Nile Rodgers called him up and asked him to sing on the song. Rodgers had produced the song “Adult Education” for Hall and Oates the previous year.
The music video was set in Japan and features INXS singing the song arriving on motorbikes, as a fairground is set up and taken down around them, all brought in and removed with large trucks.
In 2010, INXS teamed up with American vocalist Rob Thomas and Cuban female rapper DJ Yalediys to rerecord “Original Sin”, this time as a dance single. The single is featured in the 2010 INXS tribute album Original Sin.
