19 days of songs from the ‘90s: Day 12

Drive the Car Where Now?

To start yourwork week, here’s “Put the Message in the Box,” a rousing track from World Party’s great 1990 album “Goodbye Jumbo.” I find this tune to be incredibly inspirational, if logistically implausible. Driving a car around the world would involve cost-prohibitive overseas shipping as well as an inordinate number of ferries, and would likely require several different sets of the tires to navigate the various terrains. But practicalities tend not to matter when you’re belting the song on the treadmill and getting misty over its message of world unity and love for all mankind. Or so I’m told.
