Nick Cave Monday #50: “As I Sat Sadly By Her Side”

By

Earth is a bleak planet and the majority of humanity is selfish, each following the compulsion of their id.

All you need to do is look out the window to be disgusted at the theater of the human race.

Yet, leave it to Nick to create a beautiful, romantic ballad to capture the essence of our world of shit.

Nick Cave Monday #24: “Mack The Knife”

By

One night in January 1995, you may have been alive and lucky enough to have tuned your TV to “Great Performances” a special featuring the music of Kurt Weill.

It was the coolest of the cool performing Kurt’s music including Elvis Costello, William S.

Nick Cave Monday #18: “Lucy”

By

Who is Lucy? Nick’s ex-girlfriend? A ballerina? Whoever she was, we all have our Lucy. The woman who died too young. If you don’t have a Lucy yet, be assured, Lucy will come into your life. Perhaps a few times.

When The Bad Seeds busted out with a live version of “Lucy” on their last tour, it shattered me.

Nick Cave Monday #17: “The Curse of Millhaven”

By

We have embraced the love songs and feelings of the heart…this week it’s time to get our hands dirty. No more snuggles, let’s shed some blood.

“The Curse Of Millhaven” was originally written for P J Harvey to sing. She opted for a duet with Nick called “Henry Lee.”

I can’t fathom anyone but Mr.

Nick Cave Monday #16: “Palaces Of Montezuma”

By

The last time I interviewed Nick I told him how much I loved “Palaces of Montezuma” from the new record.

“You like that one?” he said with a smile. “It almost didn’t make it on the record.”

“You’re kidding!”

“My wife said she’d divorce me if we didn’t put it on there.”

Nick Cave Monday #15: “There She Goes, My Beautiful World”

By

Whenever I need a boot to my ass to work on writing or other projects, “There She Goes, My Beautiful World” is my soundtrack.

It’s better motivation than a Tony Robbins seminar and there’s no need to walk on burning coals or shade your eyes from the glare of his perfect white teeth.

Nick Cave Monday #14: “Wild World”

By

There’s a soundtrack for when I’m about to fall in love with a girl. That precious gap of time between getting to know each other physically and mentally before diving in the pool of vulnerability and embracing love and commitment.

Laying in bed, talking, cuddling, kissing, ravishing.

Nick Cave Monday #13: “Babe, I’m On Fire”

By

Clocking in at 14 minutes, 43 seconds is “Babe, I’m On Fire.”

The video is so much fun. I would have worked for free as a PA on that shoot just to watch the mayhem in person.

For most of the song is Nick calling out characters who say, “Babe, I’m on fire.” Like mom and dad and grandpa.

Nick Cave Monday #10: “The Carny”

By

When we die, “The Carny” will be our soundtrack. Us humans, who have been jonesing for beliefs and answers about the afterlife in this existence…. We will enter a red tent and DJ will drop the needle on the second track from “Your Funeral, My Trial.”

Nick Cave Monday #2: “From Her To Eternity”

By

“From Her To Eternity” is one of Nick’s sexiest songs. It was the title track on the first album from The Bad Seeds and really defined what was going to come with this new project from Nick and the guys. Nick Cave and Mick Harvey had recently moved on from the disbanding of their previous band, The Birthday Party.
