The story behind the “Where Wild Roses Grow” single
Who was Elisa Day that Nick Cave sang and sang with Kylie Minogue?
The song “Where the wild roses grow” sung by the grim and “nice” Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue, refers to the murder of a woman by her boyfriend. Singing alternately each confesses their turn, their recognition. The love that united them and the deadly walk on the river. Where the man killed his girlfriend with a stone.”When I wrote ‘Where Wild Roses Grow,’ I had Kylie in my mind,” said Keiv, who was looking for the right song to collaborate with his compatriot. When he composed “Where Wild Roses Grow,” he sent it to her, and of course Minoug agreed, as the collaboration with Keiv was about artistic rise.Keiv was inspired by the song when he heard the traditional “Down in the Willow Garden” (Down in the Willow Garden), in which a man kills his beautiful girlfriend and throws her into the river. In the verses: “Where the wild roses grow” he first describes their lightning love.
