  • John Cale - BBC Proms David Bowie Tribute


    David Bowie Prom - BBC News
    By Mark Savage
    29 July 2016
    Cale is performing Valentine's Day, Sorrow and Space Oddity. In tribute to his friend, he is treating the work with zero reverence. Space Oddity - I push it in a different direction, he says. I put in a trance beat. I've added a really great street gospel choir and we share the vocals. Cale credits the Stargaze orchestra with giving him complete artistic freedom. I asked them to play out of tune, they played out of tune.

  • John Cale - The British Masters Season 2 - Chapter 5


    In the fifth episode of this second series of the British Masters, our host John Doran speaks to pioneering musician John Cale, founding member of The Velvet Underground. John discusses Lou Reed, David Bowie, and his latest release M:FANS.

    In John Doran's own words:
    Born in South Wales in 1942, after studying music at Goldsmiths, Cale moved to New York, in 1963. The following year he went on to found one of the greatest rock bands of all time with Lou Reed: The Velvet Underground. After leaving the group, Cale went on to record a large and challenging body of solo work, and now, a few weeks from his 74th birthday he has returned with one of his most radical and most enjoyable albums to date: M:FANS.'

  • John Cale - I Keep A Close Watch



    Never win and never lose
    There's nothing much to choose
    Between the right and wrong
    Nothing lost and nothing gained
    Still things aren't quite the same
    Between you and me

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

    I still hear your voice at night
    When I turn out the light
    And try to settle down
    But there's nothing much I can do
    Because I can't live without you
    Any way at all

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

  • John Cale - Big White Cloud


    John Cale-Big White Cloud

    When I stand, my back to the sea
    A big white cloud, looking right down on me
    Sound of sun, missing my eyes
    Everything's clear, everything's bright

    Big white cloud, big white cloud
    Big white cloud on me
    Big white cloud, big white cloud
    Big white cloud on me.

    Time to kill on the hill
    Looking at bees, licking the trees
    Looking for signs ....................

    Oh how I love it,
    Yes how I love it
    Oh how I love it so.

    Oh how I love it,
    Yes how I love it
    Oh how I love it so.

    After all is said and done
    Everything, is just like it began
    Days that came, years again
    Came in here once again

    Oh how I love it,
    Yes how I love it
    Oh how I love it so.

    Oh how I love it,
    Yes how I love it
    Oh how I love it so.
