unknown post-punk songs

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Stagger Lee

“Awesome song, AWESOME performance. It’s all about tension and release here. Just compare the way the song starts to the way it ends…what a great job of letting a song just build and build from a simple beginning to huge tectonic ending.” – Eddie Lehwald

If you like this song, check out “Albert Goes West”

David Bowie – Up The Hill Backwards


“Up the Hill Backwards” was released on David Bowie’s album, “Scary Monsters,” in 1980 and as a single in March of 1981. “Up The Hill Backwards” reached #32 on the UK Singles Chart but I’m not sure how well it did in the USA. I really like the song and I think it’s time to bring it back via Your Daily Song Fix.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Albert Goes West

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
Imagine you’re a nihilist. Now imagine you’re blasting down a desert highway in a convertible with this song as your non-diegetic soundtrack. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have had an long, illustrious career, and “Albert Goes West,” from their great 2008 album Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!! captures them at their most fist-pumpingly energetic. Just don’t ask them to take responsibility for anything.

The Talking Heads – Heaven

I really like the lyrics in this song so I am posting them below the music widget. It also has a great melody and harmonies.

Lyrics
Everyone is trying to get to the bar.
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven they play my favorite song.
They play it one more time, they play it all night long.

Oh heaven, heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.

There is a party, everyone is there.
Everyone will leave at exactly the same time.
When this partys over it will start again.
It will not be any different, it will be exactly the same.

Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.

When this kiss is over it will start again.
It will not be any different, it will be exactly
the same.
It’s hard to imagine that nothing at all
could be so exciting, could be this much fun.

Oh, heaven, heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.
Oh, heaven, heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.

Mission Of Burma – Academy Fight Song

Mission Of Burma was a post-punk band formed in 1979. They had a decent run until they had to stop playing because of guitarist and singer Roger Miller’s tinnitus. Having released some great music, these guys are unfortunately very forgotten. Also, regardless of how much you like or dislike Mission Of Burma, Not A Photograph is one of the best music documentaries I have ever seen. They recently reunited to play some shows and we may be able to catch them again soon.
