Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Stagger Lee

I saw a documentary the other night about classic Aussie albums and the album being featured was Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Murder Ballards from back in 96.

The album was their ninth studio recording, and each song was themed with the crimes and consequences of passion.

Stagger Lee, started out as a smooth bass line, and slowly the Bad Seeds added bit by bit, and after an hour of jamming, they had a 'killer' song.

This song (and album) is simply amazing. Nick Cave is a true poet and wordsmith, and the genre that the album follows shows him in all his glory. Powerful, sad, emotional, dark, passionate, Cave has got it all.
