Music Meme_Another from the teen

The song is 'People Ain't No Good' by Nick Cave and
the video on this one is especially nice.
It's a compilation of images from 'Final Fantasy'
which has some of the most beautiful characters I've seen.

People Ain’t No Good

           Nick Cave

People just ain't no good
I think that's well understood
You can see it everywhere you look
People just ain't no good

We were married under cherry trees
Under blossom we made pour vows
All the blossoms come sailing down
Through the streets and through the playgrounds

The sun would stream on the sheets
Awoken by the morning bird
We'd buy the Sunday newspapers
And never read a single word

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good

Seasons came, Seasons went
The winter stripped the blossoms bare
A different tree now lines the streets
Shaking its fists in the air
The winter slammed us like a fist
The windows rattling in the gales
To which she drew the curtains
Made out of her wedding veils

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all

To our love send a dozen white lilies
To our love send a coffin of wood
To our love let all the pink-eyed pigeons coo
That people they just ain't no good
To our love send back all the letters
To our love a valentine of blood
To our love let all the jilted lovers cry
That people they just ain't no good

It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They can comfort you, some even try
They nurse you when you're ill of health
They bury you when you go and die
It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They'd stick by you if they could
But that's just bullshit
People just ain't no good

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all

It's been a year, dearest Bob, and you are missed.

Beautiful song and wonderful images. I never heard of that singer but his voice is exactly the type I like. Time to look up more by him, I'm thinking....

Thanks for sharing this.

He has a wonderful voice, I agree and I can also see why so many of Lauren's friends are addicted to this game, I may have to look into one of the bazillion versions.

one of my favorite past times is watching my brothers play video games and i'm pretty sure i've watched them play every single final fantasy out there. they are interesting, to say the least.

Lauren hasn't gotten into Final Fantasy, even if most all of her friends have and even if she can name many of the characters, she was into Zelda but I can see a PS3 on her horizon just so I can watch her play. I just think that Cloud Strife is amazingly beautiful.

ah, cloud strife. i always think of him in final fantasy vii with hooves for hands. well, all of the characters had hoof-like hands because graphics weren't so great back then.

I remember when they first introduced Pong so, any and all graphics are an improvement as far as I'm concerned.

I really like his voice. I have never saw Final Fantasy or the videos it's based on, but I do remember seeing the images and thinking they were something quite special compared to other animation at the time.

Thank you for posting this vid. :)

Final Fantasy is a video game, actually there are several versions, the video highlighted three of them, that all of my daughter's friends play...constantly. Which is what amazes me, these characters are simply avatars in a game and I felt for them.

This is a beautiful song.

it is and I think the vid really tells the story very well. Plus I think I've fallen in love with one of the characters which is kind of scary strange. Love your icon.
