Time Jesum Transeuntum Et Non Riverentum - Nick Cave and the Dirty Three

Mesmerizing. Hypnotizing. Haunting. And oh, so beautiful! This is a hidden track on a compilation album of songs inspired by the much loved Fox series, "The X Files". The Latin title translates to the phrase, "Dread the Passage of Jesus, For He Will Not Return." The music for this song is actually a revisitation (yes,I made that word up) of "Better Go Home Now" by The Dirty Three with an entrancingly seductive spoken word by Nick Cave.

Saint Judas - Mark Growden

So, there I stood, up to my elbows (quite literally) in sudsy dishwater cleaning the dinner dishes and listening to Pandora on my cell phone when suddenly I hear "Saint Judas!" singing out across the kitchen. I dropped the sponge and the steak knife I was washing, dried my hands on the towel tossed over my shoulder, and danced across the kitchen to find out what this wonderful song was and who was singing it. Instant love.
