All Time Best Musical Questions ...


Keith Nivan

Recommended Posts

A nearly 20-years-later bump of a cool thread. In fact, what ever happened to Keith Nivan, who started this thread in 2005, and dozens of others who chimed in? 

Enough board questions... here are some more questions posed in song titles, all of them from the brilliant Karl Wallinger and his underrated, under-appreciated band World Party:  

"Is It Like Today?" 

"Is It Too Late?"

"Who Are You?" (not to be confused with song of the same name by The Who)

"What Does It Mean Now?"

"What Is Love All About?"

"When Did You Leave Heaven?"

I noticed all these question titles when I was building a World Party playlist a couple years back. So when I rediscovered this fun old thread, I had to log them in. All are quality tracks, with this one ("Is It Like Today" ranking as my favorite.

Good old World Party and Karl Wallinger. That is quite a compilation of song titles with questions in it from one singer/group. Such a  talented man that few know about I'm sure. My favourite from that list is "When did you leave Heaven?" It just sounds like Karl singing in his living room, up close and personal with his guitar. Very sweet:

If we knew the answers to the questions in my song selections, we could write a pretty decent news story (who, what, when, where, why and how) !!! I'll bet susie b could come up with a Pulitzer piece!
