MINNESOTA MUSIC BLOG

 

Minneapolis trio, Semisonic, have sold over two million albums worldwide. They recorded the following song about the city’s Sculpture Garden in 1995: 

 

SCULPTURE GARDEN

Performed by Semisonic

 

Twilight in the sculpture garden
When we walk around the place
Look upon the beautiful secrets
That all the artists’ made.

How fast the light has faded
And we still want to stay
Turn down the noise and the city
The dark downtown parade.

At night they turn the water on around the artworks
In the garden, In the garden

Midnight in the sculpture garden
Underneath the cherry moon
We can make our own beautiful secret
We can join the fabled few

Starlight in the sculpture garden
With stainless steel balloons
Rose petal vermillion breezes
I believe the artists knew

At night they turn the water on around the artworks
In the garden, In the garden.

I didn't know this was from Minneapolis! Actually, I didn't know this song either. Great research on these Minnesota songs, Mark!
