My Music Monday

This is the last in two months of numbers theme. I'm going with 9, as in Damien Rice's "9 Crimes' from his album 9.

I was going to be a prick and do the Beatle's "Revolution #9". For those unfamiliar with the "White Album" (the album is really not called the 'white album'), the song is basically a cacophony with John Lennon repeating "number 9" over and over.....for over 8 minutes.

But I couldn't do that to you - not that any of you would have sat through more than 0:41 before clicking to your next website.

"9 Crimes", for me, is the highlight of 9.

In a way, 9 has many of the elements of Rice's first disk, O, but it overall the album never gelled for me.

"9 Crimes" is also his last collaboration with Lisa Hannigan. The first I saw was the absolutely exquisite "volcano".  But this song works too.
