SLIM MOON of KILL ROCK STARS – Song For Ewe

“The song reminds me of other very bleak very simple songs I love. “Failure” by the Swans. “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Joy Division. “World War” by The Cure. “Big River” by Johnny Cash. “Lord, I’m Discouraged” by The Hold Steady. “Strange Fruit” by Billie Holiday. “Is That All There Is” by Peggy Lee. Several songs by The Smiths. It also reminds me of the John Cougar album title “Nothing Matters and What If It Did?””
