Chrissy sang vocals with Iva on the remake of ‘Love In Motion’, the top 10 1981 Icehouse hit remade by Iva with Chrissy in 1992.

In a statement following the death if Chrissy Amphlett, Iva Davies said today, “It is with great sadness that we have received the news of the passing of Chrissy. Chrissy and the Divinyls played with us on scores and scores of occasions and I was always a great admirer of her as both a writer and a performer. Chrissy did me the great honour of recording her version of one of my songs, “Love in motion”, in the early nineties. She made the song distinctively hers, with her own smoking, seductive and unmistakable style. I was recently asked by The Age to nominate my choice of the Top 10 Australian singers of all time. Chrissy was among my choices, of course. She was a pioneer, and a great spirit”.
