This week's featured track from Hearsay Is 20/20 is a wee ditty called The World Of You.
Have a listen HERE!
It was the first one written for the album, although it was originally going to be the theme song for the film Love In The Sixth until the film's director/writer/producer/star Jude Klassen decided to take a different approach. The song was only half finished, but since I was free to do whatever I wanted with it then, I decided to give it a Motown feel, sort of like The Supremes' hit You Can't Hurry Love (or Iggy's Lust For Life… or Costello's Love For Tender… or The Jam's A Town Called Malice… or…). Anyway, that idea ALMOST worked, but not quite. Since I went for as many double entendres and turns of phrase as I could muster lyrically, the faster tempo turned the song into a three minute tongue twister, so I opted for the heavier half time feel you hear now (the Motown approach was later bestowed upon Ingenue Emeritus).
Anyway, enjoy! And if you'd like to hear The World Of You performed live in Toronto this week, there's always…
