Year 9 English - Roses and Daggers
Nick Cave Song Lyrics
Nick Cave was born 22nd September 1957, Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia. Cave has had success with two bands - Birthday Party and The Bad Seeds. His musical style explores his obsessions with religion, death, love, and violence with a bizarre eclectic hybrid of blues, gospel, rock, and punk.
Three of his hit songs are included in this collection:
Where the Wild Roses Grow
Into My Arms.
These lyrics can be studied as an anthology for the Short Text Essay, or as preparation for the Unfamiliar Text component of the exam.
Follow the links below to view music videos and lyrics of the three songs.
