Song of the Day, January 18: Will She Just Fall Down by ’til tuesday

tiltuesWelcomeFallAfter a strong new wave debut, ’til tuesday showed real growth and confidence on their second outing, Welcome Home. Warmer and richer, the sonic palette is more diverse. Singer Aimee Mann expands her vocal and lyrical range and the band provide a rich musical setting.

One of the standouts is Will She Just Fall Down, a sad story song of the sort Mann would explore more thoroughly in her solo career. Short and sweet, the song explores the singer’s relationship with someone who can’t quite get the hang of everyday life. Mann balances caring and frustration in just the right balance, giving the track real heart.

Enjoy this smart song today.
