"Pretty Vegas" as written by and Farriss/bennison....
Fallin' asleep at the wheel again baby,
You're driftin' over the line.
You're hands are tied, but you're losin' grip quickly
Fix me, can you read the sign!

Thumbin' your way to Vegas, dirty
Dreamin' of the other side!
Save your tears and laughter because
It doesn't matter what you find

It ain't pretty
After the show
It ain't pretty when the pretty leaves you
With no place to go.

So, if you think you need it,
Here's the place to feed it
It ain't pretty.

When, everything that you do is wrong,
And you
Feel like you can barely survive
When those around you
Are crumblin' downwards
Buried in the sunset of life.

Thumbin' your way to Vegas, dirty
And screamin' like a bitch from hell,

Save your dreams
Up your patience
Doesn't matter what you sell

It ain't pretty
After the show
It ain't pretty when the pretty leaves you
With no place to go!

So, if you think you want it!
Here's the place to get it,
It ain't pretty

Yeah, yeah, yeah

It ain't pretty

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Thumbin' your way to Vegas, dirty
Dreamin' like you're out of control,
Save your tears and laughter
Because this is the ride
And this is the show

It ain't pretty
After the show!
It ain't pretty when the pretty leaves you
With no place to go

So, if you think you want it
Just come in and get it

It ain't pretty

    General CommentI am trying to accept the fact that J.D. is now a part of INXS (which totally sucks, it should've been Marty Casey) but it is totally hard to accept. J.D. to me is just an idiot, I don't know what the band was thinking. I love INXS alot but are they deaf? Didn't they hear what J.D. would say to his house mates? Why would they want him? That just totally blows my mind in a bad way. Well J.D you got what you wanted, idiot. He did not diserve this chance of a lifetime, Marty did. I was so pissed off when I say the last episode of Rockstar:INXS. Just needed to let it out.

    General CommentWhile I know this isn't a competition discussion, I must say that I agree, I thought Marty Casey was the better performer. Perhaps, though, it's a good thing that he's now free to do his own thing. I can't wait for his first album.

    Having gotten that out of the way, this song turned out much better than I thought it would.

    General CommentI didn't like JD in the beginning but I feel he proved himself and changed his way with his housemates. I love Marty but I do feel INXS made the right chose. Love Pretty Vegas!!!!!

    Happy to hear that Marty is the opening act for them at the concerts!

    General CommentYou might want to get the DVD: Rock Star INXS. It's great! The "Too Hot for TV" is really funny. You get to see the "other part" of JD!!!!!!!

    I hope soon, that you will all agree that JD was the right choice.

    General CommentI think pretty vegas is a pretty good song, I think it has more soul and appeal when played accoustic. For those who question JDs skillz i have advice for you, go to rockstar.msn.com/ and view JDs performance of "by my side" , its on week 10 of the video section. All questions should be answered through this performance, the dude is amazing.

    General Commentthis is the first song i heard from INXS since Michael's departure. Its just a mediocre song although it is pretty catchy i must admit.

    General CommentI must say that the choice between J.D and Marty for me was quite easy to make. Evn though marty was an excellent performer, and his song "trees" was much better than pretty vegas, J.D.'s voice is an echo of micheal hutchence's voice. He may bring a new sound to INXS, but he also has to cover all the previous songs in concert. INXS made the right choice. and ill agree with nostrand, week 10 by my side was amazing. Overall though, Suzie MCneil was the best singer there.
