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.
