CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
A SLOW SONG
“…I’m brutalized by bass,
& terrorized by treble ...”
The protagonist in Joe Jackson's "A Slow Song" is pleading for a break from the overbearing cacophony being played by a DJ at a venue. He is there with his partner and they wish to unwind with a slower paced piece of music after a demanding day at work.
Jackson wrote the slow song for his 1982 album 'Night And Day'. It became the singer / songwriter's best seller on the strength of this track and the singles "Real Men" and "Steppin Out".
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
