The Go-Betweens: "When People Are Dead"



You've never heard a song quite like this one. Robert Forster of the Go-Betweens adapted a poem by little known poet Marian Stout. It tells the story of a death in the family from the point of view of a child. Great playing from the band, sensitive and majestic. 
They said you bury 
the dead.
What's buried? 
Rosie said 
something you do 
when people are dead.
