Song of the Day (Covers): Primal Scream – Some Velvet Morning (feat. Kate Moss)

Welcome to a new series of Song of the Day I may return to The Chain for a later series (possibly starting up from the previous entry, The Prodigy’s Firestarter), but for now I’m introducing a series of covers.

Day 1. Primal Scream’s heavy electronic version of Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood’s psychedelic lounge duet, featuring model Kate Moss, was recorded for their Evil Heat album & features many similar sonic touches. I remember it playing in every Indie or Rock club night for years & it seemed like a big deal commercially, so I’m surprised to see it actually only made it to number 44 in the UK charts. MAybe it’s time for a rerelease.

Some velvet morning
When I’m straight
I’m gonna open up your gate
Some velvet morning
When I’m straight
I’m gonna open up your gate

Flowers growing on a hill
Dragonflies and daffodils
Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Some velvet morning
When I’m straight
I’m gonna open up your gate
Some velvet morning
When I’m straight
I’m gonna open up your gate

Flowers are the things we grow
Secrets are the things we know
Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Some velvet morning
When I’m straight
I’m gonna open up your gate
Some velvet morning
When I’m straight
I’m gonna open up your gate

Some velvet morning when I’m straight

Flowers are the things we grow
Secrets are the things we know

I’m gonna open up your gate

Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Look at us but do not touch
Look at us but do not touch
