“Your world is falling down, you may as well crash with me…”

Returning to my Samsung playlist for this Sunday evening submission, I present Natural One by The Folk Implosion. Written by Lou Barlow and bassist Wally Gagel of Orbit, it was the seventh song on the soundtrack album from the 1995 movie Kids, though it wasn’t actually played in the film. It entered the Billboard Hot 100 at #54 on December 9, 1995 and peaked at #29 on February 3, 1996. It peaked at #4 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart on December 16, 1995 and peaked at #21 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart on February 17, 1996. I hope you enjoy. ~Vic

    Good tune. While the name Lou Barlow rings a distant bell, I don’t think I had ever heard a song by The Folk Implosion or any other Barlow song for that matter.

      Honestly, when I looked at my playlist, I had totally forgotten who the band was. I have SO much music… I had to dig up the info on them. Turns out, there ain’t much there.

      A lot of really good music came out of the 90s but, I’m not as up on the bands/musicians like I was as a teen/young adult in the 80s.

    I like this one Vic… I can’t complain…real drums and I like the melodic way he forms the verses.
