The Sisters Of Mercy Lyrics


Dramatised by Michael Ashnikov.

1980

The Sisters Of Mercy are formed in Leeds by Gary Marx and
Andrew Eldritch. (Click here for some background.) With one
guitar, a three-watt practice amp and no money, they record
a single "to hear ourselves on the radio". The Merciful
Release label is founded to issue it and one thousand
copies are pressed. The record gets played on the radio.
Described by the band as "unobtainable and even more
unlistenable", 'THE DAMAGE DONE / WATCH / HOME OF THE
HIT-MEN' is now worth hundreds of pounds - and More...

    ------ About the song Marian performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

I am not nor ever was a big sisters fan, so although I'm a contemporary of their's, I didn't know this song in the '80's...I barely heard it this year, lol.

I can listen to it hundreds of times in a row. It's great musically as well as lyrically.

When I die, they can have it blaring constantly out of my tomb which will double as a shrine to this song

Isabelle | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song 1959 performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

The name Isabelle is actually of a fan that wrote to Andrew suggesting him to play piano and voice only. Although you can find on the internet that Isabelle was one of his prostitutes in Hamburg there is no backup for this.

Great Cover!! | Reviewer: ManicMagpie
    ------ About the song Gimme Shelter performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

I have only seen this on the 12" EP. Correct me if I'm wrong. Anyone know what cd they've tacked this onto the end of?
I think I like this slooow version better than The Stones' original. But I'm partial to those EPs that were put out. Three to five songs, usually one of which was a cover, I have four. All the same looks, just different looking designs on the fronts and different coloured albums. Very simple, lovely. Brilliant!!

    ------ About the song Cry Little Sister performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

it is true that sister of mercy did not ever cover this song in any way shape or form. gerrad mcmann did write and preform it. ive just proved my music buff boyfriend wrong as he indeed thought it was someone else.

WTF!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Tamisin
    ------ About the song Cry Little Sister performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

Dude, these lyrics are wrong I love this song, listen to it every chance I get. Who the hell said this song sucks? First of all the movie it was in was totally cool, and second the song ROCKS!!!! I mean you can't get creepier, I LOVE it!! I don't really care who wrote it it sounds amazing, but then again I downloaded it from Frostwire (Limewire equal) and found it under Sisters of Mercy so whatever but the original writer should get credit for it cuz its not right to steal the credit.
Peace out peoples!
Love Tamisin

Birth | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song 1959 performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

1959 is the year the lead singer was born and his mother's name is Isabelle. While he has never, to my knowledge, written about the meaning of the lyrics; I would say it's the writer reflecting on the innocence that exists at birth.

Whats in a name? | Reviewer: YourMom
    ------ About the song Cry Little Sister performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

Gerard McMahon (aka Gerard McMann and G Tom Mac) (born Gerard Thomas MacMahon) Did indeed preform 'Cry Little Sister' first and The Sisters of Mercy have never done a cover. Gerard and his friend Michael Mainieri recorded it for the movie 'The Lost Boys' in 1987 any one wanna fight me over this can wikipedia it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cry_Little_Sister

WRONG songwriter & performer of cry little sister | Reviewer: gtommac
    ------ About the song Cry Little Sister performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

I can't tell you how it's beyond the point of laughable to think that who ever is the owner of this lyric site credits Sister of mercy for my song CRY LITTLE SISTER has not owned up to being responsible to correct the LEGAL credited song writer ME- Gerard McMann aka G Tom Mac.
A new law comes into play in 2010 that will have this site taken down & you who are responsible held accountable in legal terms. Just plain old being responsible & now justice,

to the guy above | Reviewer: dude
    ------ About the song Marian performed by The Sisters Of Mercy

"Sorry to say a song is not only the music."

You know, that would be a very valid statement... IF I wouldn't be responding to the statement that Eldrich was a fine songwriter and then instantly praising the song MUSICALLY, like he wrote the damn song! Do the next guy you respond to a favor and read his comment carefully.

And another thing, music is first and formost MUSIC, and that is something Hussey is ingenious at.
