This was once the words that rhyme with bait metanode. Changes in E2 policy have forced me to remove it in its old form.


as performed by inxs

This song immediately follows Need You Tonight on INXS' Kick album. There isn't much of a melody, but let me give you an idea of what the lyrics sound like:

hallucinate desegregate mediate alleviate try not to hate love your mate

(snip lots of gay rhymes)

deliberate fascinate deviate reinstate liberate liberate liberate liberate

(sax solo)

the music video

Because this song has a tempo and beat similar to the previous song "Need You Tonight" on the album, some video stations play the songs one after the other.

Smoke blows over the set of "Need You Tonight". Fade to a back alley, where one band member is singing, and the other is holding cue cards, one for each word or phrase. Some cards have pictures instead of words; for example, annihilate is a mushroom cloud.
