Brompton Oratory

aka Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Beautiful Roman Catholic Church in South Kensington right by the V&A Museum. Nick Cave wrote a song about this place, and it's my 2nd favorite song on The Boatman's Call album. (Where do we go but nowhere is my 1st fav) There's a black and white youtube video of the song at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_esUexstdbg. It's a beautiful, mournful song, and seeing this place reminded me of how much I love Nick Cave.

After watching that Brompton Oratory video, I just had to watch this other great Nick Cave youtube video of The Ship Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKlaV-9Vzsk. Love it.
