What songs would you NOT want your mum/mom to hear?
Think of the songs, from Boys Next Door, Birthday Party, Bad Seeds, Grinderman, etc., that would shock your mother and make her run for the nearest church. The dirtiest, slimiest, sexiest, most grittiest and irrefutably nastiest Cave songs you can think of.
So far, I've thought of:
"Black Betty" (the very energetic rawness of this would scare her)
"Hard On For Love" (cuz it's sexual and perverted)
"Jangling Jack" ("too bloody and violent and LOUD!" she'd say)
"John Finn's Wife" (just think about it.)
"Loverman" (she would think, "this is dirty white noise!"}
"No Pussy Blues" (because it has the word "pussy" in it)
"Say Goodbye to the Little Girl Tree" (again, think about it)
"Stagger Lee" (we should all agree on this one)
