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?

If memory serves, Gordon's right. I think Mike is fairly fluent in French.
well, he did write morphee, and there's quite a bit of french to be found in his solo albums

Actually, if I remember correclty, Morphee is Murray's, but translated by Mike.
gee! somebody should post a list of known exceptions to the "who sang it, wrote it" rule.
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

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.
