Save a community from its racism and Klan links, I think is what is meant?
I've always liked this - and Nick Cave - never took that much notice of the lyrics till now - interesting link with Elvis!!! Great Jam
Do edit the title/artist bit... :)
@dutchbeeblebrox hahah Does that annoy you!?!?!? I have no intention! It does not bother me! I quite like it!!! I like it when thing are a bit jumbled! haha
@lindatee Thanks Linda! What's your favorite tracks from NC&BS?!?!
@corcorankelly Whatever makes you happy. :)
Great track - one of the best from Nick & the gang
@corcorankelly God there's a lot - Off the top of my head - Ship Song, God Is In The House, Into My Arms, Mercy Seat, Nature Boy - I think I could go on - I've probably forgotten some blinders!!!
What about you???
The Curse of Millhaven is prob my fav.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvnkTUbssbI
@KParkBro @lindatee Those are great tracks! I love Carny, Red Right Hand and Are You The One That I've Been Waiting For;
Nice, this is my fav NC side project jam and one that I keep coming back to nonstop...
@KParkBro That's a great tune, man!
@MLK Sweet, bro! Glad you liked it!
@shirl Glad you liked it!
Thanks for this - and for making it more interesting
@Axol No problem! Thanks for the nice comment!
Wonderful, Mark! ....keep the gems and the insights rolling....Rock on:-) Cheers
Love Tupelo, they is one of my fave band they is.
Oh and I loves Elvis of course as we all must and tornados and envagelicals too of course
Love Elvis and big thanks for introducing me to Nick Cave with or without the bad seeds- Song links to Tupelo very sweet and melodic
Oh forgot to tell what I think of it: Elvis is God, not literally merely a Reincarnation of Jesus Christ but he is certainly one third of our Lord. Is. Not was.
May you have read a little too much into it? Unless Elvis and Nick were very into civil rights (Elvis wasn't - & Nick wasn't born so no need to feel guilt about it ). Or are we all born in the afterdays (as Kurt Weill put it best "Those yet to be born") in some way burdened w/responsable4 not having killed all nazis in our midst then or(much+difficuly a task)all current KKK members now? It certainlyt gave me much food 4 thought on how violent mankind is & how gentle nature (tornados&all)
big wow with my new earphones..enjoyed the energy,and yes atmospheric element of the band. twins in Asia are said to bring good luck to the community they are born into,add on the evangelical angle,and there you go....a god child is born. but not in superstitious Asia...in the USA...
@lindatee @corcorankelly Top track, but like Ms Lindatee I'd never tracked the lyrics too closely. Epic tale - did some looking and found this article by Mick Farren on this very song - http://dangerousminds.net/comments/rocknroll_as_spontaneous_paganism_mick_farren_on_nick_cave_elvis_and_the_de
@BarneyRubble Thanks for the link : )
@soorajsoman Thanks man!
@petersenno Glad you liked it!
@belaR Elvis would be very happy with that!
@EclecticEborens It's just what Nick wrote the song about.
@lynn200 Nice, Lynn! Glad you liked it. Insightful as always.
@Boosup1 No problem! Do you think it adds to the song? Knowing where it comes from?
@BarneyRubble Thanks for that. That is very cool, very interesting!
@corcorankelly awsome man!
I agree the song is about Elvis and has typical Nick Cave apocryphal/biblical references. And his best song is a close tie between Lime Tree Arbour and Brompton Oratory - or anything off The Boatman's call. Or Tupelo!
@bapk Those are all great tunes too, man! They have quite a few!
.....whoa thats pretty intense,and v cool....
@Joy_Classic It is! Isn't is?
@kingofmen Glad you liked it!
Cool jam! From the news out of Miss, I think Elvis needs to come back and lead them a little further.
@dyavers What news is that?
@Mark82ndABN Glad you liked it!
@corcorankelly There have been two incidents of Miss teens in cars running down and killing black men in the last couple of years. Really wrong/disturbing/sad.
