Notes.
1. This song has an almost New Order like roll not unlike 'Regret', which it preceded by
four years.
2. The lyrics are almost, a self fulfilling prophecy.
3. "…Then Hutchence (vocals', co writing, co production) made an album, billed as 'Max
Q', with Olsen. Their joint approach gives 'Max Q' a bit of a 'Midnight Oil' feel, with
more politics and a rougher rock sound than 'INXS'. The use of synthesizers and strings 
keeps 'Max Q' from being exactly earthy, but the record's got a certain energy and
forthrightness that makes it an intriguing superstar aside."
