    I've heard this. My friend played it for me about a year ago. It was good to hear the infamous Cash crooning Cave's lyrics, but it did sound a bit strange (i think because i'm so used to how Nick sings it). <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    This song always kills me...

    tell me and take your time
    set free this soul of mine
    freeze frame this sedate moment
    lie me in your quiet ground

    i understand your
    tired eyes for these
    tired homes and tired trees
    i see the pain in those
    brown eyes
    fires burn in autumn skies

    That's very nice Mary. Kinda like Gerald Manley Hopkins with the religious references taken out of it. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    I've never heard that.

    I don't want to go off topic but I couldn't resist going to see Shrek after you told us what was on the soundtrack. I was impressed. I've never seen and Elf 'Oi' band before. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    Thanks! It's on the Red House Painters self-titled album (volume I) .... it's a truly gorgeous song. There's a Windows Media clip at cdnow if you'd like to hear it.

    My ex put it on a mix for me, once when we were "in between" spells of seeing each other. Nothing to get a couple back together like the Red House Painters. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    Glad you liked Shrek!

    Mary-
    Thanks for posting the link. That song is great. I love his voice. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> Guess I'll be taking a trip to the record store during my lunch break today.

    It is extremely different from Nick's studio version, isn't it. But I've been thinking it's not actually that far removed from the version on Live Seeds. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    Here's an oldie that just came floating back. Always thought it was beautiful. I think it's content runs deeper than the obvious. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    "The sky was Bible black in Lyon
    When I met the Magdalene.
    She was paralysed in a streetlight
    She refused to give her name,
    And a ring of violet bruises
    They were pinned upon her arm.
    Two hundred francs for sanctuary
    And she led me by the hand
    To a room of dancing shadows
    Where all the heartache disappears
    And from glowing tongues of candles
    I heard her whisper in my ear
    'J'entend ton coeur'
    'J'entend ton coeur'
    I can hear your heart
    I can hear your heart
    I can hear your heart
    Hear your heart."


    Okay, I'm being really selfish here hogging this topic. I promise I'll leave it alone for a couple of days. I was surfing the net here at the office (slow day) downloading all the versions I could find of this song. It was making my eyes mist. One of the few times I was actually in the U.S. was with 70,000 other Paddy's in 1994. We were in Giants Stadium in Jersey watching Ireland play Norway. It was incredible to hear 70,000 mostly drunk Paddy's singing this in unison:

    "When you walk through a storm,
    Hold your head up high,
    And don't be afraid of the dark.
    At the end of a storm,
    There's a golden sky,
    And the sweet silver song of a lark.

    Walk on through the wind,
    Walk on through the rain,
    Though your dreams be tossed and blown...

    Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
    And you'll never walk alone...

    Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
    And you'll never walk alone...
    You'll never walk alone."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    Got another one for my fellow saps <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> This is a beautiful Indigo Girls song, "Fare thee well," from Swamp Ophelia. Frankly, I don't like the album version as much as the one I heard first, on PBS' Austin City Limits. I only have that version on cassette... it's spare and acoustic, and they dressed the album version up too much for my liking.

    On with the song!

    fare thee well my bright star
    i watched your taillights blaze into nothingness
    but you were long gone before i ever got to you
    before you blazed past this address

    and now i think of having loved and having lost
    but never know what it feels like to never love
    who can say what's better when my heart's become the cost
    a mere token of a brighter jewel sent from above

    fare thee well my bright star
    the vanity of youth the color of your eyes
    and maybe if i'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day
    or if i'd been older i'd been wise

    too thick the heat of those long summer evenings
    for a cool evening i began to yearn
    but you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire
    waiting to see if i would burn

    fare thee well my bright star
    it was a brief brilliant miracle dive
    that which i looked up to and i clung to for dear life
    had to burn itself up just to make itself alive

    and i caught you then in your moment of glory
    your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage
    with a moment so clear that it's as if you're still before me
    my once in a lifetime star of an age

    so fare thee well my bright star
    last night the tongues of fire circled me around
    and this strange season of pain will come to pass
    when the healing hands of autumn cool me down



    ...I first heard this song 8 years ago, the summer one of my dearest friends died in a car accident, and it remains the only song that fairly represents my grief. It's still a great song, even if it does make me cry.

    "Saps". I think I kinda like that. Thank you Mary.

    "Every night I tell myself, 'I am the cosmos. I am the wind.'
    But that don't get you back again.

    Just when I was starting to feel okay,
    You're on the phone.
    Never want to be alone.
    Never want to be alone.
    I hate to have to take you home.
    Want it too much to say no, no.
    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.

    Never want to be alone.
    I hate to have to take you home.
    Want you too bad to say no, no.
    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.

    My feelings always have been something I couldn't hide.
    I can't confide.
    Don't know what's going on inside.

    So every night I tell myself 'I am the cosmos. I am the wind'.
    But that don't get you back again.

    I'd really like to see you again.
    I really want to see you again.
    I'd really like to see you again.
    I really want to see you again..."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    "I hear him
    before i go to sleep
    and focus on the day that's been.
    I realise he's there
    when i turn the light off,
    and turn over.
    Nobody knows about my man.
    they think he's lost on some horizon.

    And suddenly I find myself
    listening to the man i've
    never known before....

    ooohh, he's here again.
    the man with the child in his eyes."

    mmmmm. I'm surprised we haven't seen more Kate Bush in here before. Nice one Vilji. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    Now see what you've done.lol

    I've been singing Kate Bush songs to myself all morning.

    "I found a fox
    Caught by dogs.
    He let me take him in my hands.

    His little heart,
    It beats so fast,
    And I'm ashamed of running away

    From nothing real--
    I just can't deal with this,
    But I'm still afraid to be there,

    Among your hounds of love,
    And feel your arms surround me.
    I've always been a coward,
    And never know what's good for me."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    whoo-hoo Kate Bush Day!

    "You,
    It's you and me,
    It's you and me won't be unhappy.

    "C'mon, baby, c'mon darling,
    Let me steal this moment from you now.
    C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
    Let's exchange the experience, oh..."

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems. "

    there's a great dance remix of this song by Elastic Band. It's amazing.

    Must check that one Xis. I've never heard anyone cover Runnin' Up That Hill. Great song.

    "There's a storm outside
    And the gap between the cracklin' thunder,
    Cracklin' thunder
    Is closing in
    Is closing in.

    The rain floods gutters
    And makes a great sound on the concrete.
    On a flat roof
    There's a boy leaning against a wall of rain
    Aerial held high
    Calling 'come on thunder, come on thunder'

    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes
    I swear I can see your soul.
    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes
    I swear I can see your soul."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    That's lovely Vilji. Roem, quick, please make me a batting-the-eyelids smilie.

    "Put your face to my window
    Breathe a night full of treasure.
    The wind is delicious, sweet and wild
    With the promise of pleasure.
    The stars are alive and nights like these
    Were born to be sanctified by you and me.
    Lovers, thieves, fools and pretenders.
    And all we gotta do
    All we gotta do
    Is surrender."
