Interesting Musical Facts: Number One

Did you know that Nick Cave and Enya collaborated on a cover of Don’t Fear the Reaper?


Well that’s good, because they didn’t, although enough people seem to think that Finnish goth band HIM sound enough like Nick Cave and Enya to misattribute their cover to them on file sharing networks. Here it is anyway…

Nick Cave? I can sort of hear it. Enya? Doesn’t sound anything like her!

Can’t say I’m a huge fan of HIM’s interpretation (not enough cowbell for a start), but each to their own.

(No doubt many HIM fans are now raging with fury that I dare to describe HIM as a “goth band”. No doubt many HIM fans think I actually care :D)


ewww ! Yuck.
