Info


Words for the Dying is the twelfth solo studio album by Welsh musician John Cale, released in 1989 by record labels Opal and Warner Bros. The album consists mainly of oral work, read or sung by Cale. It was written in 1982 as a response to the Anglo-Argentinian Falklands War, using poems written by fellow Welshman Dylan Thomas. There are also two orchestral interludes, two other solo piano pieces Songs Without Words, and finally a song by Cale, The Soul of Carmen Miranda. Perhaps Cale's own unusual hairstyle which resembles a book of carpet samples more than anything led him to re-evaluate the impact of an actress who could dance with ten pounds of fruit on her head.
