Bury Me Deep in Love is a single released by Australian folk rock group The Triffids from their album Calenture.[1][2] It appeared in October 1987 and reached No. 48 on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart.[3] It was produced by Gil Norton (Pixies, Echo & the Bunnymen, Foo Fighters)[2] and written by David McComb,[4] the group's lead singer and guitarist. The B-sides "Baby Can I Walk You Home" and "Region Unknown" were produced by Victor Van Vugt and The Triffids. The single was released as 7", 12" & CD single versions.

"Bury Me Deep in Love" was covered by Kylie Minogue, in a duet with Jimmy Little, on the 2001 album Corroboration. It was used in the Australian TV soap Neighbours for the wedding of Harold Bishop and Madge Mitchell. The single was re-issued in the United Kingdom in August 1989 (again as a 7", 12" & CD version), with new B-sides to tie in with the local broadcast of the Neighbours 1989 episode. The new tracks were cover versions of "Rent" by Pet Shop Boys and "Into the Groove" by Madonna. It was also used in November 2009 for Australian drama series, Packed to the Rafters for the wedding of Ben and Mel.
