Song 408: Way Down Now

I hate writing posts like this.

Karl Wallinger, the force behind World Party, passed away last week. World Party had some great albums in the late 80s and early 90s, and my favorite was Goodbye Jumbo. And my favorite track – Way Down Now – had classic lyrics:

Won’t you show me
Something true today?
C’mon and show me
Anything but this

Which is exactly how I felt when I saw the news last week. Underrated but greatly appreciated.
