Mr. Stagger Lee in color by smurfwreck Mr. Stagger Lee in color by smurfwreck
Mr. Stagger Lee (or Staggolee or what have you) now in glorious color! So I guess this guy has a vivid history in ballads and song, but I'm most aware of him via the Nick Cave song off of Murder Ballads. He shot a barkeep four times in the head for sassing him, and then he threatened to screw a hookers boyfriend in the butt for showing up, but then shot him instead. Yup. I'm sort of going nutso on monsters lately, but I'm having a hell of a time doing it.

When we saw Nick Cave live, he finished with a lounge jazz version of Stagger Lee, which included a new final verse in which the devil himself turns up, and Stag takes him down too.

It was fantastic.

So is this.

Yeah, I only know the oldie "Stagger Lee" song. Speaking of songs about freaks, have you heard "Aisha" by Death In Vegas? Great song. Iggy pop vocals.

I'm really only familiar with his Stooges era stuff. I'll have to check that out.
