'If I Show You the Roses, Will You Follow?'

I think I may have mentioned before that I like murder ballads. This one has been going through my head for much of the day.

There is a cover of this by Roy Khan and Chanty Wunder that is just as good, although making subtly different artistic choices. Nobody writes a murder ballad as well as Nick Cave; he really is the master of Southern Gothic. Another excellent Nick Cave murder ballad is his duet with P. J. Harvey, Henry Lee.
