"The Strangest Party (These Are The Times)" as written by Andrew Charles Farriss and Michael Kelland Hutchence....
Welcome to the strangest party, baby
It's like we're staring at the sun
Everybody's got their invitations
Hoping that you're gonna come, yeah

These are the times (times)
These are the crimes (crimes)
What are we waiting for?
What are we hating for?

You're part of the solution or part of the problem
You're gonna have to dance with one
You're giving up on the future, honey
I'll count you out of having some
Yeah, some

These are the times (times)
These are the crimes (crimes)
What are we waiting for?
What are we hating for?

Here comes the rain
Yeah, here comes the rain, yeah

These are the times
These are the crimes
What are we waiting for?
What are we hating for?

These are the time (times)
These are the crimes (crimes)
What are we waiting for? (what are we)
What are we hating for? (waiting for)

Wash away the pain
Into the blue sea, yeah

These are the times (times)
These are the crimes (crimes)
What are we waiting for? (what are we)
What are we hating for? (waiting for)

Wash away the rain
Into the blue sea, yeah

These are the times
These are the times

    General CommentI first heard this song as part of the Drop Zone soundtrack. I have followed this band since 1984, and man, hae they really come into their own.
    How many bands anymore can claim that they kept their original line up all the way to the end?

    General CommentI just figured it was sort of a world view, especially with the "what are we hating for", and so on.

    General CommentI think this song is about living like a 24 hour party person. Your own life and the lives of everyone around you become the strangest party, specially if you are Michael Hutchence.
