I did a search for this song in this forum, but somehow there's been no discussion about it(!).

I just heard this song on Flashback Alternatives, and I had totally forgotten all about it. It was great.

I tried all the usual routes to try to purchase it or download it, but to no avail (even the artist's own website). It's really disappeared. Even on YouTube there's no video for it.

Anyone have an mp3 of it? I would be most grateful!!! :o

Hey David,

No're quite welcome.

As you can see from my post re: the Modern Music 1990 CD, has been an ongoing hard one to track down.

Another tough one, the radio remix of Meryn Cadell's "Barbie" was just found. (It's the version that CFNY played, not the album version.) Maybe I should put that up for people. :-)


PS - Flashback Alternatives is nice, but have you checked out Live Earl Jive's "e-station"? Look for one of my

I know I've heard Meryn Cadell's "The Sweater" on FA from time to time.

I'm glad you like this song. You might be interested to know that I'm currently working on a new album which will include a newly recorded and different version of the song. I'm pumped about it and I'd be very interested to know what people who liked the original would think about it.

Check out my website and send me an email. I'll send you a link where you can preview the new version of Miracle and you'd do me a big favour if you let me know what you think.

Glad to hear you are still alive and well and continuing to make music. I'll be sure to check out your website. I'm sure there are other CFNY fans out there, unaware of your new music. I'll post a story on my Radio Zazoo blog.

I have just released a remake of MIRACLE (Miracle of Love). You can download it for free:

from the press release:

"The original version of MIRACLE (Miracle of Love) is now out of print but repeated requests from frustrated fans inspired Russell to re-record the song for his next album, "2012". This version is a totally fresh arrangement with no synths in evidence, just real drums (played by Mike Bessette, Russell's punk cohort from their band, The Strokes -- no not that band, this band was first!), and tenor sax played by Russell."

Hope you like it!
