"Tight" is the only single released from The Best of INXS album by INXS. The song was written by Andrew Farriss and recorded by the band during the sessions for Welcome to Wherever You Are in 1992.


According to the liner notes from the UK album release, the song had been originally intended for Tom Jones to sing on. However, following Hutchence's death in 1997, the track was reworked by the rest of the band in 2002.


A number of different mixes of "Tight" were available on European, Australian and US editions of the CD.


The video for "Tight" was a tribute montage, showing video and live footage of Michael Hutchence and the rest of the band.
