INXS - "Don't Change" (the song remains the same)

Most people's don't realize INXS had a full career before 1987's "Kick", which was so popular when I was in college it effectively blocked everyone's memory of anything that came before it.  One of my favorite songs is "Don't Change", a single from their 1982 LP "Shabooh Shoobah".  It's a great song that still sounds fresh some 24+ years later.  You also have to enjoy the low budget video as well -- over the top videos were apparently still a few years away.

So imagine my delight when I recently uncovered Bruce Springsteen doing a fun cover of it while in concert in Australia in 2014. 
I'm standing here on the ground
The sky above won't fall down
See no evil in all directions
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark for too long
