Nick Cave and Shane MacGowan – What a Wonderful World

it’s Christmas Eve, i’m tired and under the weather and can’t think of something new to post about so i’ve decided to go for one of my favourite stabs at a Christmas hit

19 years ago in 1992 good friends Nick Cave and Shane MacGowan got to gether to record a non-album single. as a charting single it didn’t fare well, peaking at just a humble 72 in the UK, but i remember it fondly, brightening up a dull afternoon as Cave and MacGowan’s voices reached my ears via a crappy little radio at work. it was never going to better Louis Armstrong’s superb recording from 1968, but i don’t think there was ever any intention of attempting to do such a thing. it’s simply two friends singing a great song
