The Loved One is a significant rock song for two generations of Australian’s. Originally recorded by The Loved Ones it was subsequently covered by 1980’s rock band INXS.
Although The Loved Ones main career only spanned two years from 1965-1967 they were regarded as one of the Australia’s most influential rock bands of the 1960’s. Their song “The Loved One” listed at number six for the thirty best Australian songs of all time on the Australasian Performing Rights Association list 2001.
In surprising similarities, The Loved Ones released the song twice, once in May 1966 and again in October 1967. Whilst INXS released their version of The Loved Ones originally in March 1981 as a single only available in Australia. They then re-recorded the track in 1987 to be included on their international album, Kick.
