Kristin Hersh – Your ghost (testo)
“I could get a piece of meat from a barren tree
nothing ever spoiled on me
you brought this you dipshit
nothing ever spoiled on me
yhat cloud stomps around my house
does whatever it pleases, it teases me
what the hell?
Never was a baritone till you stepped in
never dried my halters on the line
this hairdo’s truly evil
I’m not sure it’s mine.
You’re so tall
it’s like I climb a waterfall
What I said was get me a drink alright?
What am I supposed to sit
And look at you all night?
All girls cry like I said,
I don’t know why”.

“Your Ghost is the first track from Kristin Hersh‘s debut solo studio album Hips and Makers. It features additional backing vocals from Michael Stipe of R.E.M.. The song was released as a single on January 10, 1994 and reached #45 in the UK singles chart. It was also featured on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for With Honors released later that year. According to Filmmaker magazine, the music video for the song was directed by Katherine Dieckmann and is an homage to Maya Deren‘s groundbreaking 1943 experimental film Meshes of the Afternoon. The song was sampled in DJ Scott Browns‘s gabber song “Ghosts“. The song was also sampled in μ-Ziq‘s song “Phiesope“. This song was re-recorded as “Your Ghost 2006” with 50 Foot Wave. This version is quite different from the original because of the use of a distorted guitar. Greg Laswell issued a remake of “Your Ghost” on his October 2009 EP Covers, an album of five non-original songs covered by Laswell. Laswell’s remake was featured in episode 6.05 of the TV series Grey’s Anatomy and in episode 2.08 of the TV series Dollhouse. This song was also covered by the band Black Lab and was the hidden track for their album Passion Leaves A Trace. In 2013 “Your Ghost” was covered by IRA (Polish band) on their “X” album”.
