I Wander This World, Jonny Lang, 1998
Sometimes I hear a song and flip for it so much, that I play it over and over and over for days on end. This is the latest one…
When I heard this guy introduce himself before singing, he sounded like a very sweet, very young boy. Turns out he was 17 when he made this same titled album. But the boy sings like a MAN! I can listen to him all the live long day and mostly do!
“Lang’s second album, Wander This World, often sounds like it could have been the work of a man of 30… The haunting title song finds Lang singing a little too convincingly about loneliness…” [From a Review by by Alex Henderson]
The boy is 29 now and listening to him is a total aural orgasm… And no, I didn’t say “oral” so get your mind out of the gutter, or not, whatever floats your boat… 🙂
Here’s the album version, usually my favorite
