Earbleed: “O Children” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds


This one goes out to my peeps who caught Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 over the weekend. The song features prominently in the film and is one of very few (2, even?) popular songs used in any of the 7 installments.

Have a listen to the ever-brilliant Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds‘ “O Children”:

If you’re anything like me you thought the movie was pretty good (check out my full review for more) but maybe didn’t think that much about it afterward.

And then you listen to this song and it all comes crashing down around you and your eyes fill with tears and the overwhelming sadness of the whole thing becomes fully present, and you want to curl up into a ball and cry yourself into a deep, eternal sleep.

Happy Monday!

And it goes without saying that if you don’t already own this song you should head on over to iTunes or whatever and buy it. (Unrelated: When is Cave’s mind-crushingly brilliant Murder Ballads going to be available for download? Sheesh…)
