SONG OF THE DAY: 'Show You The Way' by Thundercat
  • TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2017

  • Posted by: Kirsten Spruch



Bassist/songwriter Thundercat just released his third studio album, Drunk, last week. It features a lot of playful lines - some silly, some serious, all meaningful. "Show You The Way" featuring Flying Lotus, Michael McDonald, and Kenny Loggins is a wonderful standout track that cleverly balances both. Over a funky, sensual beat, a deep voice introduces, "Ladies and gentlemen, Michael McDonald..." right before he comes in with his tortured verse.

The melodies imply an easygoing atmosphere, but don't let that fool you - Thundercat is still sending a powerful message. He's trying to figure out how to live life: "Heavy-hearted, a lover ends life / I just wanna live, learn how to fight / When it's all over, breathe into the light / Sink or swim, I'm not scared to die."
