Ah, great song.

Wow, haven't listened to that song in ages. It's actually the only Nick Cave song I really like (and the only one featuring Kylie Minogue that I like, too :D).
The next one you posted is quite nice, too.

Do you know MetallicA's version of Loverman? I must say I like it much more that way. Tastes may differ, though.

Was going through a site that has royalty free music cause I need something for a short vid. came across this

a dark version of Tchaikovsky's nutcracker.

This version so needs to be longer and done with a full live orchestra.

Anyone heard of Pomplemoose? Funny, sometimes moving, irreverant but usually surprising even though they do a lot of covers.
This is a mash up of Gotye and Call me Maybe (which looks and sounds so much better than it reads):

Back to the boxes of vinyl records I've finally sorted out and am now listening to for the first time for ages.

Giselle by Adolphe Adams, the one I'm listening to is an excellent 1969 recording rather than this lovely filmed version

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I have heard bits of Giselle before, but not the whole ballet. Very nice indeed. :)

Well i'm now embarking on an A to Z of my vinyl which should lead to interesting juxtapositions, especially as I'm picking out some of the records I haven't played for a while :D after Adams comes Bach, lots of this so as a representation lets have what I have on at the moment

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
