Don't you know what you're doing
You've got a death wish

Suicide blonde [Repeat: x4]

Suicide blonde was the color of her hair
Like a cheap distraction for a new affair
She knew it would finish before it began
Wow baby I think you lost the plan

You want to make her suicide blonde
Love devastation, suicide blonde
You want to make her suicide blonde
Love devastation, suicide blonde

She stripped to the beat but her clothes stay on
White light everywhere but you can't see a thing
Such a squeeze
A mad sad moment
Glory to you
Glory to you
Take me there
Take me there

Got some revelation
Put into your hands
Save you from your misery like rain across the land
Don't you see the color of deception
Turning your world around again

That's the story.

    General Comment:I was a technician for INXS back in the 80's. This song is about Huchence girlfriend who was acting in a movie and needed to dye her hair blond. She made the comment that "they want to make me a suicide blond" so he took those lines and created the hit. Too bad he died soon after....

    General Comment:Definitely written about Kylie Minogue, who wanted to "dye by her own hand" she decided to go peroxide blonde, so he wrote a song about it.

    General Comment:It's about Kylie.

    Also, she played a remixed version of this song before she performed a concert.

    General Comment:On March 5, 2007 Michael Hutchence's brother attempted to auction off a racy fax sent from Michael to Kylie Minogue. Supposedly lyrics from this song were included.

    Another example of brotherly love, eh?

    General Comment:The harmonica in this song freaking ROCKS.

    It's very evocative of a beguiling woman... here are my favorite lines-

    "Like a cheap distraction from a new affair"

    "Stripped to the beat, but her clothes stay on"

    And I adore the term "suicide blonde" and now use it in everyday speech.
