We care a lot - Faith no more

Somewhere in 1987, 'We care a lot' by Faith no more was played very often on the radio. So much so that after a while I actually started to like this loud and noisy song. The song was originally recorded for the band's 1985 debut album of the same name. In 1987, when they recorded their second album 'Introduce yourself', the track was re-recorded and included on that album as well. It was even released as the first single from that album.

Although 'We care a lot' did not chart in the Netherlands, it reached number 53 in the UK singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 626
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1987
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'We care a lot' / 'Spirit'

Epic - Faith no more

Faith no more's 'Epic' is in many ways just another hard rock song. It's actually because of the last few seconds of this track that I ended up buying the single. After all the aggression and tension comes a beautiful piano intermezzo, and then the track fades out. There's something very poetic in that.

The music video for 'Epic' received extensive airplay from MTV in 1990, despite provoking protests from animal rights activists for slow motion footage of a fish flopping out of water.

My collection: 7" single no. 1525
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, September 21, 1997
Cost: 10 guilders
Tracks: 'Epic' / 'War pigs (live)'
Download: Epic
