Song Lyrics - New Sensation

I think that words combined with music can have a profound effect on us, and in this series I want to showcase some songs that I really think hit the mark. Taste in music is subjective, of course, but I'll be picking songs that I think have that combination of words and music. Songs that stand apart.  

New Sensation! This song is so catchy, I just love the beat and the infections nature of it. It makes me happy. And near as I can tell from the lyrics, it's about living life to the fullest, and maybe living in the moment as well? Taking advantage of what life throws your way? Taking a chance. I don't know, that's sorta my take. Regardless, I love the driving beat.  

What do you think of this song?  


Live baby live   
Now that the day is over  
I got a new sensation 
In perfect moments 
Well so impossible to refuse

Sleep baby sleep 
Now that the night is over 
And the sun comes 
Like a god into our room
All perfect light and promises  

Got a hold on you  
A new sensation, new sensation  
Right now gonna take you over 
A new sensation, new sensation  

Dream baby dream 
Of all that's come and going  
And you will find out in the end 
There really is 
There really is no difference 

Cry baby cry  
When you got to get it out  
I'll be your shoulder
You can tell me all  
Don't keep it in ya  

Well that's the reason why I'm here  
Hey hey 
Are you ready for a new sensation, new sensation 
Right now
Gonna take you on a new sensation, new sensation
A new sensation, new sensation 
A new sensation 

Hate baby hate  
When there's nothing left for you  
You're only human what can you do 
It'll soon be over
Don't let your pain take over you

Love baby love 
It's written all over your face 
There's nothing better we could do
Than live forever
Well that's all we've got to do
Hey now I'm gonna take a new sensation, new sensation 
Right now
Gotta hold on you 
A new sensation, new sensation
A new sensation, new sensation 
A new sensation  


  1. Wow! Memories right here. I remember seeing them live, back in the day. This was a good jam, but Never Tear Us Apart was my favorite from this album.

  2. Such a good song! I used to really love INXS. Don't Change was always my favorite from them but this one was good, too. I always thought this one had more of a rock feel than a lot of their other stuff.

  3. I couldn't agree more Greg! So very true!! Thanks for sharing this and what a beautiful song!

  4. Sad to say, but I've never really been a big fan of INXS.

  5. Wow, I have not heard this song in forever! It brought back memories for me. I love how music can do that.

  6. Wow, this one takes me back to when I was in high school and I agree with you about the meaning of the lyrics. I always loved their lyrics.

  7. You are taking me on a trip down memory lane here Greg. I was maybe twenty when this came out. It does make you smile.

  8. Such an upbeat song and I have always loved INXS. I had a best friend in high school who was OBSESSED with Michael Hutchence. It's so sad that he had such a tragic ending to his life. "One Thing" has to be my favorite INXS song!

  9. I've never really paid attention to the lyrics of this song, but I think your take sounds pretty good!
