thinking one from each of the very general nick cave song groups:
piano ballad: no more shall we part
rock: i had a dream joe
big ott oppressive awesomeness: jack the ripper/stagger lee
I'm not sure they fit into those three categories though. The last two are both OTT awesomeness.
...based on your categories:
But that doesn't take into account how much I fuckin' love Stagger Lee, Straight to You, I Had a Dream Joe, Do You Love Me, Let Love In, Til the End of the World, Tupelo...in fact pretty much everything pre-Nocturama.
..I'll throw in:
Brother My Cup Is Empty
Lime-Tree Arbour (could've easily been Brompton Oratory, Lucy or Straight To You)
I'd've thought that you meant Bad Seeds, Birthday Party and Grinderman.
But using the piano/rock/ott format:
Slowly Goes The Night
There She Goes My Beautiful World
Oh My Lord
Stranger Than Kindness
Into My Arms
My favourite proper rocker though would be We Call Upon The Author to Explain.
Piano ballad : Ship Song
Then two from Red Right Hand, The Mercy Seat, From Her to Eternity and The Carny (not sure how to fit those into the categories)
