SONG OF THE WEEK #32: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "West Country Girl"

"West Country Girl" appeared on Cave's anguished, beautiful album The Boatman's Call (1997), and with its brevity and oddly 'Eastern' violin (played, naturally, by Warren Ellis) it so clearly stood apart from the epic, piano-led rest.  
This stylish, B&W video was shot, inexplicably, by MTV. A great version of a great song.
