“Goodnight Moon” by Shivaree (1999)
The band name, ‘Shivaree’ came for the French term ‘shiveree’ which is a raucous newlywed tradition most commonly occurring along the Mississippi river. The neighbours wait for the dark of night when the couple is hopefully asleep and then armed with pots and pans and noisemakers, make a ruckus that could raise the dead. When the couple gets up they invade their home, make coffee and expect the couple to feed them, sometimes leaving a bit of a mess just for fun.
Their third album, “Who’s Got Trouble” includes “I Close My Eyes” which continued the haunting and southern-sounding French-influenced song-weaving.
They actually have produced 4 albums but only 3 were released in the U.S. due to a contract dispute with their record label, their final album in 2007 a mix of cover songs titled “Tainted Love: Mating calls and Fight songs”. They have sold over 500,000 albums... so far...
