I Want You To Dig

I'm a little bit hooked on the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds song "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!" Whenever I hear it I think "Wow that really reminds me of something, what is it?" But I just realized. It reminds me of Nick Cave! He's back and I'm glad. Didn't really pay too much attention to the last couple of albums (they fell off my radar after Boatman's Call, which now that I look at their discography -- wow that came out in 1997? this life thing is going too fast) but this new album sounds re-energized. Reminds me of nights years ago spent in a certain apartment in the tenderloin with a curly redheaded girl.

Great song. Nick Cave was pretty lively in the recent Leonard Cohen tribute album performances as well. But this song actually reminds me of "People Who Died" by the Jim Carroll band.
