Bury Me Deep In Love
« on: April 02, 2011, 12:29:30 PM »
I went and saw a choir last night - unfortunately family members sing.  I generally can last 2 or 3 songs before I get really bored.  The 4th song was "Bury Me Deep In Love".  Rubbish.

But not quite as bad as "Streets of your town" by the Go-betweens.  Also rubbish.

Do you really not like that song? While I think David's a
far superior writer I don't think any of the singles The Triffids
did except W.O.R are as perfectly studio distilled as Right Here
or Bye Bye Pride or Streets of your town.
Similarly I think the Production of Bury Me Deep in Love so
buried in sonic blandishments I wonder what they were
thinking and yet it's named in every telebite biography as a
major song.
That being said I was dead set certain that Trick of The Light
would be a hit was bitterly disappointed. Say what you like
about Payola or the Willie Moretti agency, these people got results.

Yes Max - just the choir versions of both songs.  That said, the original versions of both songs don't rate particularly highly in my list of the best Triffids or Go-betweens songs.  I thought the "sonic blandishments" for both songs were from the same producer - but a quick check of the www set me straight on that mistake.

I'm glad that was settled amicably. Awfully difficult to throw
cut lunches at each other at this distance... BUT if you do
want to 'punch on' meet me at ..uh.. Taylor Square, Sunday
morning about 7am. Come shaved, sober and wearing shoes
and we can't miss each other. If I'm late start without me.

You might have enjoyed the version of Bury Me Deep that I did with Mark Halstead and Andy Wear at Kosmo's school fete a couple of weekends ago. Then again you might not. I wouldn't put the song in Dave's top five but it does have a certain resonance with people, or is it just that it's the second best known of his songs. Agreed on Trick...a huge disappointment that it wasn't a big hit.

I'm sure I would have enjoyed it Glee!

Re: Bury Me Deep In Love - its the "Craig Leon" bits that annoy me but, with the passing of time, even those can be appreciated at a distance. 

Its also the song that sounds the most dramatically re-worked when compared to the wonderful - and the best in the series (so far)! - expanded "In the Pines" album.

Of all the singles put out during your time in The Triffids, were
there any in particular (apart from W.O.R and T.O.T.L) that
you felt sure would be a hit? Mr. Lee?

After TOTL flopped I had no faith any more. Holy Water stood a chance. We needed someone else to have the hit.

After Sydney I had this fantasy where Youth Group did an EP 'Youth Group Play the Triffids'. In the vein of 'Sports Play Dylan (and Donovan)' and 'Weddings Play Sports (and Falcons)'. In this fantasy the commercial stations picked up TOTL ........ I wonder if they considered it, given their only hit has been a cover.

I went and saw a choir last night - unfortunately family members sing.  I generally can last 2 or 3 songs before I get really bored.  The 4th song was "Bury Me Deep In Love".  Rubbish.

Bury Me will be Australia's Hallelujah. It's taking a while, but if choirs are singing it badly, it's getting there.

You may be right. Having a school choir mangle your song is
better artistic validation that having Sinatra cover it.
(Plus your 'rider' would be a tub of Lamingtons).
