Song of the Week 11/16/07

Joseph Arthur - "In the Sun"

Sometimes I think I listen to WFUV too much. I heard Arthur's most popular (arguably) song once in the middle of the night when I woke up during a broadcast of that day's World Cafe. Then it was played during the morning show and then again that night when the "proper" airing of the World Cafe takes place. I've known the song for years but never felt compelled to own it, until now.

I played the song as I wrote the above paragraph, and during that time I realized that Michael Stipe really did an awful cover of it in 2006. But it was for a good cause (Katrina relief efforts) so I'll give him a pass.

But not for Around the Sun. There's no way to forgive him for that piece of crap.
