It was a brilliant decision to have Israeli star Ofra Haza sing on this version with Andrew Eldritch as her wonderful vocals transform and add another level to this dark song. It is great to have this example of the incredible voice and range of someone who died far too young.
This is just one of those tunes which resonates. I'd never heard of Ofra Haza back when this thing came out. I'm not sure many people outside the Near East had. She does the wonderful backing vocals twining around the chorus. Just gorgeous.
