Driven Like The Snow

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

In a Spanish radio interview last week, the DJ asked Eldritch what his five favourite records were. After hearing just three the DJ gave up. "The first was Elgar's Cello Concerto. Number Two was 'Je T'Aime' [** see footnote] and I was just about to get into the details of how Gary Glitter must be an awesomely intelligent human being to create anything as ridiculous and fantastic as 'Didn't Know I Loved You Till I Saw You Rock'n'Roll' when he pulled the plugs. I was serious about them though."
** 'Je T'Aime'-- Eldritch is almost certainly referring to Vicious Pink's 1983 cover of this classic. The title is French for "I love you".
Been a fan of some kinda trash -euro-dance-techno :lol: music, but
vicious pink is probably the worst I've ever heard.
even though the-piece-of-junk like songs, that lady's voice have some point.very sensual,husky....kinda sexy.
Well ,Eldritch definetely mad about her at that times. that voice and ... :twisted: maybe he loved more her luscious looks than the voice. :roll:

but i'd rather recommend the original version of Je T'aime......(by Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin) 8)

Von definitely likes Je T'aime by Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin, he played it on the 1984-07-11 on the "Big Fun Radio Show" when he got to pick his favourite tracks.

I sellected that quote in classic After the Flood article.
If he preffered original,he might had a excellant taste.but he had a tendency to hating- all related to french.. wasn't he? :lol: :?
Maybe he thought the truth that Gainsbourg & Birkin are not real french. :P
Of course i love EN(sorry,always forget to spell the band name. :cry: )
version,too.

Eldritch doing Venus in Furs? The dark prince discovers sadomasochism? That would be a nice dream......

Rosetta Stone already did it, and seeing as their cover of When the Levee Breaks stopped Von from covering it I on't see him doing Venus In Furs either.

And Sister Ray was good enough.

Rosetta's cover of "Venus" was appalling. Knocked together in 2 minutes by a cynical solo artist after the rest of his band had deserted him, for an even more cynical darkling "tribute" album.

Levee wasn't too bad though.

You would have thought Andy Warhol would have loved it. I bet Page and Plant do, too. Not the track, the being covered. By anyone. For Warhol, the worse the cover, the bigger the compliment, I would have thought.

I'm sure the royalties helped ease the pain...

That's right. Even the legendary Dolly Parton has had to put up with being covered by some really awful bands. And the Sisters.

I actually quite like it. Okay, he does warble, but there was a time in the early 1990s when he was murdering quite a few covers, and in that context Jolene stands out as one of the better ones, I thought. I like the sexual politics too. But okay, I wouldn't put it in their top five covers.

Having said that, I'd better back it up - my favourites today are:
Gimme Shelter,
Knocking on Heavens Door,
Comfortably Numb,
Gimme Gimme Gimme,
and Ghostrider.
