Nick Cave: ‘There is a Light’ | Soundtrack

This one’s a bit different.

Something—I’m not entirely sure what—reminded me of this song a couple of weeks ago. It took a bit of time to track it down (I knew it was Nick Cave, and I knew I had it on a mix tape when I was 16, but beyond that…), and then it turns out that it only seems to appear on one album, and the track isn’t available for purchase on its own.

And I’m not buying the entire Batman Forever soundtrack just for one song. (I’d forgotten Batman Forever existed, to be honest.)

It’s not Nick Cave’s best song (though I still love it). It’s twenty years old. But nostalgia + the degree of difficulty in finding it means I’ve been listening to this song obsessively for about a week:
