So, here is a list of ten of my most treasured love songs – old, sad songs mostly, and sentimental too, that have travelled with me through the years, holding sway over my world and never failing to rescue me.
I love this man and now over this weekend on his Red Hand Files website, he’s named his most “treasured love songs” by other artists. So I’ve dug about on YouTube and embedded them all above and blogging or sharing them myself too. Check out the full issue #32 linked here. It sounds like they’re back in the recording studio in Los Angeles working on the new Bad Seeds album more before his May and June tour of Europe & the UK, here’s hoping the recording sessions all works out! If you haven’t got your tickets to one of the dates of that tour, your missing out big time! It would have to be one of the most wonderful night seeing Mr. Cave live on stage and I’ve pretty much seen every tour here since I turned 18! I’m guessing it’s going to be just as great over there too but I think, it’s all sold out already!
In other whatever you call it, if anyone wants to knows? I’ve also finally put the finishing touches or just got it together on my own little list which was very long in the end of my own hiding songs which he kind-of asked me for back in January, three month later I was brave to press send to him but it was a big messy like this blog is most of the time. The non question or my reply to Nick fuckin’ Cave was very hard thing to do and who knows what the man himself will make of it all? Thinking now and typing about it here, if I got something like it? I would be deleting myself!
