NICK CAVE Into My Arms (1997)

 
 
I feel very emotional today and I simply have to post this wonderful, wonderful song which is probably one of the best songs ever written.
It's originally from the 1997 released "The Boatman's Call" and now on my personal "Best Of NICK CAVE".
Enjoy!



"Into My Arms"
I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that's true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

But I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she'll keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

Good God!

THE CLASH's Sound System is the band’s re-mastered recorded works collected together for the first time. Contained within classic boombox packaging designed by Paul Simonon, this boxset contains the band’s five seminal studio albums in their original eight-disc format, newly re-mastered by THE CLASH; a further three discs featuring demos, non-album singles, rarities and B-sides; a DVD with previously unseen footage by both Don Letts and Julien Temple, original promo videos and live footage; an owner’s manual booklet; reprints of the band’s original Armagideon Times fanzine as well as a brand new edition curated and designed by Paul Simonon; and merchandise including dog tags, badges, stickers and an exclusive Clash poster.

THE STYLE COUNCIL Modernism: A New Decade (1989)

 
This is what would have been the last THE STYLE COUNCIL album but was rejected by the band's record company.
wiki: It represented a departure from the band's core genre of pop, to a new one; deep house, which was then being referred to as "garage" (as in Paradise Garage) music by the UK press. However upon its completion in 1989, it was rejected by their label Polydor, which led to the band breaking up. It was eventually released in 1998 on the box set, The Complete Adventures of The Style Council. A separate release was released in 2001.

01 A New Decade
02 Can You Still Love Me?
03 The World Must Come Together
04 Hope (Feelings Gonna Getcha)
05 That Spiritual Feeling
06 Everybody's on the Run
07 Love of the World
08 Sure Is Sure
