We Were Born Within An Hour Of Each Other

I like a bit of Nick Cave every now and then but I sometimes think I'd be happy never to hear one of his piano ballads again. Apart from this one- his cover of Pulp's Disco 2000. Nick Cave takes Jarvis' tale of school day crushes, lost love, growing up and the turn of the millennium, and slows it right down. Yes, there's piano, yes, it's a ballad, but it works a treat. This was released as a B-side to Pulp's Bad Cover Version single, which presumably was someone's idea of a joke.
