Song Of The Day: Brian Eno & John Cale, “Lay My Love”

Brian Eno John Cale

In his quest to collaborate with damn near everyone, in 1990 producer Brian Eno partnered up with virtuoso John Cale. The resulting album, Wrong Way Up, offered up a fine slice of quirky music. Although Eno seemingly left his vocal side in the 1970s, Wrong Way Up hinted at that past, as “Lay My Love” demonstrates. With a mechanical rhythm and catchy melody, the song sounds like Penguin Cafe Orchestra gone pop. Thirty years on, it still sounds like nothing before it, a fun little aside from two masters.
