Your Sky All Hung With Jewels


Back to the Bunnymen thing that's been going around here with Nouvelle Vague's cover version of the Killing Moon from 2006. While they strip much of the drama out of the song and make it all sleepy, the addition of an accordion and a French accent are generally a good thing.

I have to agree with you there SA. There is something very right about The Bunnymen and France . After all the album was primarily recorded in Paris -- I think Mac was smoking too many Gitanes in Paris and ended up re-recording the vocals in Liverpool...

It does work, doesn't it? I'm a big NV fan... and what they can do to a Lords of the New Church number is divine!

always love the story of the Bunnymen decamping to Paris to record ocean rain and Mac then recording the vox back in Liverpool
