Sister (Pick Word #11)


This is the first part of The Family Tree series which collects songs about family members. I chose to start with the sister, the female sibling in a family. A lot of stories were written about the relationships between brothers and sisters, such as The Sisters by James Joyce. You can find here below five songs that deals with sisters by Ed Harcourt, Tindersticks, Depeche Mode, Lou Rhodes and This Mortal Coil.

Ed Harcourt - Sister Renee (Taken From From Every Sphere, 2003)

This Mortal Coil - You And Your Sister (Taken From Blood, 1991)

Tindersticks - My Sister (Taken From Tindersticks Second Album, 1995)

Depeche Mode - Sister Of Night (Taken From Ultra, 1997)

Lou Rhodes - Sister Moon (Taken From Bloom, 2007)
