Two Jian-penned songs go head to head to determine what your favorite song from Wood is!  Down From Above and It's Too Cold both received enough votes for Wild Card consideration.

what exactly leads you to believe jian penned nuits de reve?
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
He's said so. Mike Translated it into French.
derek harrison Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
dammit. another example of how good jian used to be.
Jºnªthªn Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
I thought Mike wrote is and Mike's brother translated it...
Josh Woodward Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
If memory serves, Gordon's right. I think Mike is fairly fluent in French.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
Isn't his wife a Francophone?
derek harrison Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
well, he did write morphee, and there's quite a bit of french to be found in his solo albums
lawrence Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
Actually, if I remember correclty, Morphee is Murray's, but translated by Mike.
derek harrison Back · 9 years, 11 months ago
gee! somebody should post a list of known exceptions to the "who sang it, wrote it" rule.

If only for the guitar solo, when performed live.

.oO But what am I so afraid of? Oo.
danced with Lazlo Back · 9 years, 10 months ago
So nu? Convert and marry me already!
nate... Back · 9 years, 10 months ago
nah, I'd never convert to catholicism.. ;D

nate... · 9 years, 11 months ago
for many reasons... though I love both.

Musically, it is far more haunting.... and puts me into a trance-like state.... especially after certain shows. I'm sure some people know of which I speak.

In any event, yeah, both great songs, but I think nuits just edges it out.

Every time I listen to a Früvous album in full I end up back here.

I had to pick Nuits de Rêve... pas seulement car c'est français (though that helps), but because it's just a beautiful song, haunting song and it really invokes some great imagery! It's sexy. :oD
VaiVedrai · 9 years, 11 months ago
I'll second the "sexy" aspect of it, besides the obvious foreign-language beauty of it. The imagery of it has such dramatic resonance, the melodic line is haunting, and Mike's soaring vocals...I'm speechless.
