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
