Song to the Siren

This Mortal Coil

September 1983 (EP) / October 1984 (LP)

This is the song that gave this blog its title, so it seems right to open with it. Although itโ€™s a cover, this is the most famous version and, Iโ€™d claim, the definitive version.

Recorded by Liz Fraser and Robin Guthrie of 4AD act Cocteau Twins, this was released on the B-side of a 12โ€ release, then the A-side of a 7โ€, before appearing on the first This Mortal Coil album Itโ€™ll End in Tears
