Turn Up The Volume’s Favorite Valentine’s Day Classic Cracker

Top singles from the past…

14 February 2021

The Ship Song by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds is my all-time favorite
Valentine‘s Day lullaby. It was my and my magnificent wife’s wedding
song, back in 2009.

We’re both not fans of crazy Valentine’s Day commercialism,
but Nick Cave can come around any day, also today…

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

From 1990 album The Good Son

‘THE GOOD SON’ By NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS Released 30 Years Ago…

19 April 2020

Living legend and one of my fav all time artists NICK CAVE and his band THE BAD SEEDS released their sixth album THE GOOD SON on 17 April 1990, 30 years ago. It was the first LP that showed a change in mood and songwriting overall as Cave started to make an art out of crooning, not in a smooth Frank Sinatra way, but more like a modern Leonard Cohen with a doomed voice.

Later Cave commented: “I guess The Good Son is some kind of reflection of the way I felt
early on in Brazil. I was quite happy there. I was in love and the first year or two was good. The problem I found was in order to survive you have to adopt their attitudes towards everything, which are kind of blinkered.”

Drowned In Sound wrote: “The Good Son is much, much more than Cave going soft. As a transitional album, there‚Äôs plenty here for fans of both Cave the lover and Cave the fighter.
And Cave the storyteller: still gloriously wild-eyed, yet with the grotesque excesses of yore replaced by a more humane perspective.
” Full review here. Score 9/10.

SOULFUL SUNDAY – Living Legend NICK CAVE Playing My Wedding Song…

Feel good vibes for the laziest day of the week…

A heartwarming masterstroke. My wedding song. Thanks, Mr. Cave.

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything, it comes tumbling down

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings
And you, you must try to fly

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

Come sail your ships around me (Come sail your ships around me)
And burn your bridges down (And burn your bridges down)
We make a little history, baby (We make a little history, baby)
Every time you come around (Every time you come around)

From the magical album The Good Son ( his sixth album – released in 1990)…
