Original Sin 2020
A Fusion of 2010, 1983 and 2019 Versions
"Original Sin" was released as the first single from INXS's fourth album, The Swing. It was written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Farriss, and produced by Nile Rodgers.
It was released as a single in the US in December 1983, where it reached No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984. In Australia, it reached No. 1 in 1984, and became an international hit during that year.
Daryl Hall sings the chorus with Hutchence. During an interview in Australia, Hall said Nile Rodgers called him and asked him to sing on the song. Rodgers had participated in remixing the single "Adult Education" for Hall & Oates the previous year.
