  • Murder Ballads

    'Knoxville Girl' by the Louvin Brothers is the best murder ballad.

      I think that Nick Cave may have put an album out called Murder Ballads many moons ago

        I like Excitable Boy, but I guess it's not a ballad.

              Also not really a ballad, but one of the roughest, toughest blues you will ever hear.
              And it's just scarily great.

                This one kinda slipped past, but here’s a couple Where the murder’s happened or gonna happen:

                Cold Rain and Snow, with the four of my favorite players/singers. Bonus to the incredibly sexy Bryn Davies on upright bass. I sincerely hope she continues to play after she achieves her academic pursuits (nuclear energy criticality - which caught her interest even before the rest of were quarantine binge-watching Chernobyl)
