Original Witch

Jeg er stadig ikke enig med Søren Ulrik Thomsen i, at Hanne Boel synger bedre end Marianne Faithfull, og ikke på trods men op grund af hendes fint tornede stemme - på hendes ny plade med Keats-titlen Negative Capeability gensynger hun apropos al nylig heksevirksomhed "Witches Song" fra den hovedværket Broken English, det er en bedre tekst end noget samtidigt (ellers senere) 80'er-digt:

[Verse 1]
Shall I see tonight sister
Bathed in magic greet
Shall we meet on the hilltop
Where the two roads meet?
We will form the circle
Hold our hands and chant
Let the great one know
What it is we want

[Chorus]
Danger is great joy
Dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family
Lonely is the ward

[Verse 2]
Sister we are waiting
On the rock and chain
Fly fast through the airwaves
Meet with pride and truth

[Chorus]
Danger is great joy
Dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family
Lonely is the ward


[Verse 3]
Father we are waiting
For you to appear
Do you feel the panic
Can you see the fear ?
Mother we are waiting
For you to give consent
If there's to be a marriage
In the eve's contempt

[Chorus]
Danger is great joy
Dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family
Lonely is the ward
- og her singlen fra den nye plade, duet med Nick Cave, og sigøjner-elverdronningen er selvfølgelig også en heks (men hvorfor er pladen Kissin Time ikke på Spotify?)
