Nick Cave – Rainy Night in Soho

There’s a light I hold before me and you’re the measure of my dreams


Nick Cave does a fine version of one of Shane MacGowan‘s many great songs, the sublime Rainy Night in Soho.

A song, in the best songwriting traditions, imbued with beautiful poetry and a sumptuous melody. A timeless classic.

This video comes from an episode of the top BBC Music Show “Later with Jools Holland” back in 1992.


Cave of course is a huge fan of Shane’s work and they have recorded together a few times.

“Rainy Night in Soho” was recorded by Cave for the What a Wonderful World EP released in December 1992 on Mute Records.

On this EP, MacGowan also performed a Cave song, “Lucy” .

Both Shane and Nick, rather surreally, duetted on the classic Louis Armstrong hit “What a Wonderful World”!!

“Rainy Night in Soho” was originally included on the Elvis Costello produced Poguetry in Motion EP, by The Pogues which was their first single to make the UK Top 40.

A different version can be found on an expanded edition of the group’s seminal 1985 release, Rum, Sodomy and the Lash.

The song is a huge fan favourite and is commonly performed at Pogues concerts and has been included in their recent setlists since their reformation in 2001.

The song has been included on every Greatest Hits album the band has released, and is the first track on their 2001 disc, Ultimate Collection.

Many artists have covered this great song. most recently, a rather good version appeared on Damien Dempsey‘s fine 2008 album, The Rocky Road, a collection of traditional ballads.

Rainy Night in Soho

I’ve been loving you a long time
Down all the years, down all the days
And I’ve cried for all your troubles
Smiled at your funny little ways
We watched our friends grow up together
And we saw them as they fell
Some of them fell into Heaven
Some of them fell into Hell

I took shelter from a shower
And I stepped into your arms
On a rainy night in Soho
The wind was whistling all its charms
I sang you all my sorrows
You told me all your joys
Whatever happened to that old song
To all those little girls and boys

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
But there’s a light I hold before me
And you’re the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams

Sometimes I wake up in the morning
The gingerlady by my bed
Covered in a cloak of silence
I hear you in my head
I’m not singing for the future
I’m not dreaming of the past
I’m not talking of the fist time
I never think about the last

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
Still there’s a light I hold before me
You’re the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams


Shane MacGowan (1991)

Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue & The Pogues – Death is not the End

A very interesting star studded cover of Bob Dylan’s great “Death is not the End”, originally from his much maligned, but actually decent 1988 LP Down in the Groove.

‘Death Is Not The End’ was covered by Nick Cave – an artist who has always been heavily influenced by Bob Dylan – with the Bad Seeds in 1996 on the Murder Ballads LP.

The Cave version featured several vocalists, such as Anita Lane, Kylie Minogue, PJ Harvey, and Shane McGowan, including Nick Cave himself and Bad Seeds drummer Thomas Wydler and guitarist Blixa Bargeld.

They each sing a verse – strangely the only song the only song on Murder Ballads where an actual death does not occur!

Death is not the End

When you’re sad and when you’re lonely and you haven’t got a friend
Just remember that death is not the end
And all that you’ve held sacred, falls down and does not mend
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

When you’re standing at the crossroads that you cannot comprehend
Just remember that death is not the end
And all your dreams have vanished and you don’t know what’s up the bend
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

When the storm clouds gather ’round you, and heavy rains descend
Just remember that death is not the end
And there’s no one there to comfort you, with a helpin’ hand to lend
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

Oh, the tree of life is growing
Where the spirit never dies
And the bright light of salvation shines
In dark and empty skies

When the cities are on fire with the burning flesh of men
Just remember that death is not the end
And you search in vain to find just one law abiding citizen
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

– Bob Dylan, 1988

Shane MacGowan & The Popes – The Song with No Name (RARE !)


Shane MacGowan and the Popes The Song With No Name
November 1994 – ZANG60CD 4509-98786-2 (ZTT Records)

From: OztarAntoine

This is a part of the rare video clip of this genius song from Shane, called “The song with no name”.

I’m currently searching for the complete video, so please, if you know where I could find it, send me a little message.


Long years ago I fell in love
With a lady proud and fair
So passionate were she and I
We made fire in the air
I loved her more than life itself
She loved me just the same
And it broke my heart
To think we’d part if she ended the affair

But I was brutal, I was ignorant
I was cruel I was brash
I never gave a damn about
The beauty that I smashed
No sadist I, I took delight
In making my Love cry
Now I’d pray for a single kiss from her
To be lashed and crucified

And now I feel this lady fair
Can never more be mine
Long gone are night in my lonely bed
All suffering and crying
And though I fear that through this life
She’ll only call me friend
‘Till I’m dead and buried in my grave
My Love will never end


By Shane MacGowan (1994)

Christy Moore & Shane MacGowan – Spancil Hill


I dreamt I stooped and kissed her as in the days of yore

Irish trad giant Christy Moore and a young looking Shane MacGowan rattle out this traditional classic – the beautiful lament Spancil Hill – on Irish TV (Ireland’s Late Late Show with Gay Byrne).

I remember seeing this on its first live broadcast! I was only about 6 years old then, of course!

Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by
My mind being bent on rambling to Ireland I did fly
I stepped on board a vision and I followed with the wind
and I shortly came to anchor at the cross near Spancill Hill

T’was on the 23rd June, the day before the fair
When lreland’s sons and daughters and friends assembled there
The young ,the old, the brave, the bold came their duty to fulfil
At the parish church at Cloone , a mile from Spancill Hill

I went to see my neighbours to hear what they might say
The old ones were all dead and gone, the young one’s turning grey
I met the tailor Quigley, he’s bold as ever still
Sure he used to mend my britches when I lived at Spancill Hill

I paid a flying visit
To my first and only love
She’s white as any lily
And gentle as a dove
She threw her arms around me
Saying Johnny I love you still
She’s Meg the farmers daughter
And the pride of Spancil Hill

I dreamt I stooped and kissed her
As in the days of yore
She said Johnny you’re only joking
As many the times before
The cock crew in the morning
He crew both loud and shrill
And I woke in California

Many miles from Spancil Hill.

Big thanks to the original poster

Shane MacGowan and Maire Brennan – You’re the One

Shane MacGowan and Maire Brennan – You’re the One
May 1995 – ZANG68CD 0630-10927-2 (ZTT Records)

End title song for the movie based on the awful Maeve Binchy book, Circle of Friends!

Maire Brennan from Clannad here duets with the Shane with an emotional song co-written by Michael Kamen.

You fill my sweetest dreams
You fill my sleep
You fill my heart with love
You make my life complete
When all is said and done
Darling I know you’re the one

Lying in my lonely bed
Thought about you as the moon
Listening to the sad songs down below
Thought about you as the tune
Wish that I could let you know
I think about you as the sun
So you’re everywhere I go
My darling I know you’re the one

The one I long to see
To drown myself in you
Surround myself safe in your arms
Forever

Darling I know you’re the one

Funny how the circle turns
Funny how the flame still burns
Now that all is said and done
Darling I know you’re the one

Wherever you go
I’ll always know
Darling I know you’re the one
You’re the one
Darling I know you’re the one

By Michael Kamen and Shane MacGowan (1995)

The Pogues With The Dubliners – Irish Rover

The Pogues With The Dubliners blast out this traditional classic back in 1991!

I’m not sure, but I think they’d had a few drinks!


The Irish Rover

Traditional

On the fourth of July eighteen hundred and six
We set sail from the sweet cove of Cork
We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks
For the grand city hall in New York
‘Twas a wonderful craft, she was rigged fore-and-aft
And oh, how the wild winds drove her.
She’d got several blasts, she’d twenty-seven masts
And we called her the Irish Rover.

We had one million bales of the best Sligo rags
We had two million barrels of stones
We had three million sides of old blind horses hides,
We had four million barrels of bones.
We had five million hogs, we had six million dogs,
Seven million barrels of porter.
We had eight million bails of old nanny goats’ tails,
In the hold of the Irish Rover.

There was awl Mickey Coote who played hard on his flute
When the ladies lined up for his set
He was tootin’ with skill for each sparkling quadrille
Though the dancers were fluther’d and bet
With his sparse witty talk he was cock of the walk
As he rolled the dames under and over
They all knew at a glance when he took up his stance
And he sailed in the Irish Rover

There was Barney McGee from the banks of the Lee,
There was Hogan from County Tyrone
There was Jimmy McGurk who was scarred stiff of work
And a man from Westmeath called Malone
There was Slugger O’Toole who was drunk as a rule
And fighting Bill Tracey from Dover
And your man Mick McCann from the banks of the Bann
Was the skipper of the Irish Rover

We had sailed seven years when the measles broke out
And the ship lost it’s way in a fog.
And that whale of the crew was reduced down to two,
Just meself and the captain’s old dog.
Then the ship struck a rock, oh Lord what a shock
The bulkhead was turned right over
Turned nine times around, and the poor dog was drowned
I’m the last of the Irish Rover

Shane MacGowan – "That Woman Got me Drinking"


Shane MacGowan and the Popes – That Woman’s Got Me Drinking
3rd October 1994 – ZANG56CD 4509-97579-2 (ZTT Records), also ltd. ed. cardboard fold-out sleeve
Highest UK chart position: 34

The wonderful video starring Johnny Depp and Shane MacGowan for Shane’s great song “That Woman Got me Drinking” and also a live performance with Johnny Depp on guitar!

For seven long years
She helped me spend my dough
Now I take her out
But she don’t wanna know
That woman’s got me drinking
Look at the state I’m in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

That woman’s got me drinking
We used to have some fun
Now shrinks and astrologers
Have got me on the run
That woman’s got me drinking
Look at the state I’m in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

She said she’d always love me
She said I’d be the one
Now look at the way she treats me
Just like a piece of scum
That woman’s got me drinking
Look at the state I’m in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

If I had the guts to do it
I’d take a long goodbye
Instead I’ll love her long and hard
And love her ’til I die
That woman’s got me drinking
Look at the state I’m in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

Bottles of gin, bottles of gin, bottles of gin,
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

Shane MacGowan & Nick Cave – What a wonderful World


Shane MacGowan and Nick Cave
What a Wonderful World
December 1992 – CD MUTE 151: 5 016025 601516 (Mute Records)
USA: 9 66352-2 (Mute/Elektra)

Magnificent version of the classic Louis Asmstrong song What a wonderful World by Shane MacGowan & Nick Cave !

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Sinead O’Connor & Shane MacGowan – Haunted (ZANG 65)


Sinead O’Connor & Shane MacGowan – Haunted (ZANG 65)

(C) ZTT Records, 1995. A Zang Tuuum Original, ZANG 65.

A great performance of this Shane MacGowan song by mad Sinead O’Connor & Shane !

Not shane’s finest work, by a long shot, but still pretty fucking good!

This track reached number 30 in the UK charts in 1995.

Man, Sinead did look good back in the day!

This was recorded in the period somewhere between the time when mad Sinéad O’Connor called Joe Duffy’s Radio programme in September, 2002 to defend MacGowan – who had got drunk and puked on the audience at a gig in Dublin a few days previously – saying: “He is an angel near the end who needs support. He’s too far gone to stop drinking; he has an illness that cannot be cured, and as far as I can see, the end is near for him” and the time a few years later when Sinéad reported him to the police in London for drug possession!!

Do you remember that sunny day
Somewhere in London
In the middle of nowhere
Didn’t have nothing to do that day
Didn’t want to do nothing anyway

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there’s something about you
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
of your precious love
of your precious love

The first time I saw you
Standing in the street
You were so cool you could have
Put out Vietnam
All the girls say “Whats he like?”
I said “He’s kind of shy
But that’s the kind of girl I am,
He’s my kind of guy”

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
of your precious love
of your precious love

I’ll build my world around you
I’ll bless the day that I found you
I’ll stay beside you and I’ll never leave
Or tell you all those lies you’d never believe
Uh huh huh

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
of your precious love
of your precious love

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there’s something about you
That’s the kind of girl I am,
He’s my kind of guy
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

Haunted… Haunted… Haunted…
