Throw Your Arms Around Me - Hunters and Collectors Studio Version
"Throw Your Arms Around Me" is a song by Australian rock band Hunters & Collectors first released as a single in 1984 by White Label for Mushroom Records. A re-recorded version of the song would later appear on the band's 1986 album Human Frailty. Written by bass guitarist John Archer, keyboardist Geoffrey Crosby, drummer Douglas Falconer, trumpet player John Howard, recorder/mixing engineer Robert Miles, vocalist/lead guitarist Mark Seymour and trombone player Michael Waters. The song captures the intensity of sensual love at the same time portraying its fleeting nature with lyrics including "And we may never meet again, So shed your skin and let's get started". Interesting variations in the lyrics, depending on the recording artist, highlight the complex and subjective nature of the subject matter. For instance where Neil Finn sings "And though I try to forget it you will make me call your name. And I will shout it to the blue summer sky"; the Hunters and Collectors version is "We will never forget it.... You will make me call your name and I will shout it to the blue summer sky."
