Von in How Can Heaven Love Me - Sarah Brightman

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Probably I'm the only one who did'n't knew this not ?
I found this, I've never heard about that :eek:

Andrew Eldritch from Sisters of Mercy provided the vocals for the German interlude in the song

Bleurgh! That was just plain awful, imho - the song and the vid. Brightman's voice sounded thin and forced, and the lyrics simply stank.

YMMV, of course. :urff:

Die Welt ein Tor
Zu tausend Wüsten
Stumm und kalt
Wer das verlor,
Was du verlorst
Macht nirgends halt ...
So far about Von's part in it ...

Remarkably, since Nietzsche died in August 1900.

Yep. It's actually amazing they have any time left for touring & interviews, what with all that "recording" they're doing.
:innocent:
Cheers.

It made no difference, because in 1981 I was very good in the art of editing tapes. Today this work is much simpler with computers, but I was already doing it then, I was using echo units to work as samplers, before samplers were invented. So the technology facilitated but did not change my ways, honestly. What made a difference was Photoshop, because I do a lot of graphic art, and my life is now much easier with Photoshop and Illustrator. I do lot of work with web servers, just because I like to understand how these things work, I have many computers and spend a lot of time playing with digital codes. But I spend more time with computers and watching movies than actually making music.
I think that explains it all .... he's not better off than most of us ... :lol: ...

Sarah Brightman was in Hot Gossip!? I never would have known that!

I would love to know the circumstances that brought :von: to add his dulcet tones to that particular piece! Surely the thought of that being your last bit of recorded work would be enough to spur him towards the studio (or perhaps this is another example of irony?!)
