I’ve been meaning to Friday Break this Cult piece for quite some time but every week I hesitated and chose another because I feared it would be too much for a Friday…
Today is different. I woke up and decided this should be it! The day I’ll delight you with a piece of The Cult: Painted On My Heart! (as you probably suspected, it’s a special song … for my Adored Husband!) Thank you for this wonderful week and for your lovely comments! I hope you’ll have the most amazing weekend, enjoy The Cult’s Painted on My Heart! (more information after the jump!)
The English rock band The Cult was founded in 1983 but got recognition on the American market only in the early 90s when alcohol and tensions were already breaking them up. Which eventually happened in 1995. The two most lasting members of the band, vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy brought the band back together (with Matt Sorum and Martyn LeNoble) for two more albums (Beyond Good and Evil in 2003 and Born into This in 2007).
The Cult’s discography featured six previous albums to the ones released after the reunion: Dreamtime (1984), Love (1985), Electric (1987), Sonic Temple (1989), Ceremony (1991), The Cult (1994). Given that the band constantly changed members throughout its entire existence is now counting up to 23 former members. “Painted on my Heart” is part of Gone in 60 Seconds (the remake from 2000) original soundtrack and was written and produced in 1999 (even though I searched for it in The Cult’s discography, the song is not included in the band’s released albums/singles).
