Nobody in the world would have expected the combination of a mordant crooner and pop darling to be a success except for Nick Cave himself. Apparently he’d been writing songs for Kylie Minogue for years, none of which he considered strong enough to present to her for a duet, until this macabre and yet strangely beautiful ballad of a murderer in conversation with his victim.
