SONG OF THE WEEK #118: The Verlaines - "Death And The Maiden"

Do you like Paul Verlaine? Never been a huge fan of their regular albums, but "Death And The Maiden" (1983) is one of New Zealand's finest ever singles. I'm not sure what that deranged, circus-like middle section is doing there, but it all adds up I guess. The chorus is... well, if you close your eyes while listening to it, you might actually see a dozen flying nuns sweeping past you. That chorus is insanely good.
