I don't think I shared my fav spot, but now that you mention it, mine would be exactly the same as yours - from that line on, no question. chills 'n thrills!
If I had to pick my 3 favorite PJ songs (in no particular order), there'd be this...50 FT Queenie (natch), and I'd really have to sort through a bunch of contenders for that 3rd spot (something from Stories?...something from 4-Track?)
I know Bob Dylan once remarked that he really like that song, 50 Ft Queenie
. Not one of my absolute favorites, I must say. *ducks*
My favorite song off of ITD? would likely be Catherine
. Love the whole ominously unrequited love subject matter. Great lyrics, great tone.. easily one of her best, imo. But my all time PJ track remains, The Dancer
; The organ, the flamenco feel, the dramatic turmoil, everything.

Mick Harvey is no relation to her, actually. Just good friends & occasional musical collaborators with the coincidence of sharing the same last name. And I don't think Mick ever played drums for the Bad Seeds.
Guitar, keyboards and production only. The Bad Seeds have rotated a couple different drummers in/out of the line-up, neither of which was ever Mick.
Anyway, word has it that Mick didn't leave the Cave "fold" under the best of terms. Warren Ellis (from the great 3pc. instrumental band, Dirty Three) had slowly overtaken him to become Cave's principle musical foil. First, as part-time member in the Bad Seeds, now in Grinderman w/Cave.
