Martha Wainwright – Bloody Motherfucking Asshole (live)

Martha Wainwright’s BLOODY MOTHERFUCKING ASSHOLE is so amazing, I picked it as my first “Song of the Week” when I started this blog more than 2 years ago. I came across a pretty good live version on youtube yesterday and decided to give it some more attention.

Martha sings it with so much conviction, passion.
It’s pure emotion. Emotion is life.
And “life lives” as a friend of mine said the other day.

“I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I’m all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth…”

Listen to the studio version here: Martha Wainewright – BMFA

See My Freedom Dance

The following line is from my all-time favourite song. I am afraid it won’t be recorded anytime soon but Cylindrian Rutabaga sings it every time she spots me in the audience. She is such a sweetheart.

“Throw away all the bitter fruits of yesterday and fertilize the soil with forgiveness, so love can abide in this garden…” (Grace Buford – Dancing in the Garden of Freedom)
