When the Sun Fell Down

And the Moon Fails to Rise.

These are the lyrics running through my head this morning. Planted by the Gary Numan song “When the World comes Apart”. I think I have been making up for lost time consuming as much of his music since I rediscovered this artist with the song and video for “My name is Ruin“.

My Name is Ruin

Gary Numan had that song in the 80’s, “Cars“, which I was minorly fond of but never interested enough to delve further into his music. On one of my YouTube music video binges, his new song, “My Name is Ruin”, came up and I figured “let’s see how his music has changed over the years”. Well let’s just say this song spoke to me in a way that “Cars” never did. It’s powerful, mature, rich, polished yet still with an edge. His daughter Persia performs in this with him too. I have been listening to this every day since I found it, so of course it was expected to show up on it’s own as an earworm, going through my head sometime, and that time was this morning.
