Lay Me Low
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Track #9 from the album Let Love In
Main Author's Notes
This song has a very special meaning to me, it’s probably the first Nick Cave song I’ve ever loved. “Lay Me Low” is arguably the climax of “Let Love In”, in my humble opinion the best album of Nick’s career. It’s a huge, dramatic (seriously, really dramatic) and grandioze ballad, that builds up to an enormous chorus, at which Nick’s humorously describes the scenes after his death, the enormous (“ten miles long”) parade, the writings in the newspaper and the other consequences. It’s one of those customs I’ve wanted to do for ages and I’m glad it’s here. It’s just a huge song to sing, play and you’ll be guaranteed to enjoy it.
