here's the alleged story of why the kids did cry so heartbreaking in the lou's song the kids:

lou reed borrowed some of his friends' kids and took them into the recording studio (it could also have been the producer's kids). now, i don't know if the parents knew what he was going to do or not, but he told the all the kids that their parents just got into a big accident and died and would not come back for them. so they all started crying and screaming. he recorded it, took the kids out of the studio, and then gave them back to their parents.
I've heard it a bit differently, although the account is largely the same. In that version (in the booklet with the Between Thought And Expression box set) it was just the producer who went home and told his 2 young kids that their mother wasn't coming back. By heavily processing the sound it sounds even more harrowing. The crying at the end is supposedly just time to go to bed for the kids. (hmm, sounds familiar to me from when I was a young lad )

BTW, I did not get your email. Is it maybe possible to send it again to popmartijn@hotmail.com and watch out for the subject line (as I have a junkmail filter). It seems as if I set the flag to immediately delete junk mail a bit too soon then. Sorry about that...

C ya!

Marty

P.S. For those wondering, it does matter who exactly told these kids that their mother wasn't returning. You do want to know for sure who is the bad guy before you start getting angry at the wrong man for torturing those kids.

I don't have Perfect Day in my sad song category at all Jack In The Box...it's on my feelgood list. Just goes to show how we all hear/perceive things differentlly.
Hub is in another room listening to Beth Orton at the moment. He told me he likes Devil Song the best and I want to try to learn it. I don't know what the lyrics are yet , but hearing it right now, makes me sad. It has a sad feel, bit of a bummer...I wanted to learn a new happy song. I specialise in sad songs it seems and I'd rather not. Quandary.
Eric Clapton's song on a burned CD someone gave me makes me cry, not sure of the title, River of Tears I suspect. Kasey's song Million Tears makes me sad. Classic one everyone has heard?
oh gosh...blast from the past, Old Shep, Nobody's Child.
more recent/popular?....something to ponder
