NPR picks MWP's "Lullaby for the Lonely" as their song of the day Print E-mail
Monday, 06 April 2009
NPR is the american public national radio network and they chose Marty's "Lullaby for the Lonely" as their free download "song of the day" on April 6th 2009

Barbara Mitchell says 

April 6, 2009 - Misery may love company, but it loves comfort, too. "Lullaby for the Lonely" is that kind of gesture — a thoughtful, soothing song for anyone who's ever felt overwhelmed, delivered in the comfortingly familiar voice of The Church's Marty Willson-Piper. Assisted by gentle orchestration and tender backing vocals, Willson-Piper has crafted a reassuring lullaby for grown-ups.

For all the defeat that pervades the song, from the scenarios Willson-Piper lays out in the verses to the titular refrain in the chorus, "Lullaby for the Lonely" creates a beautiful, peaceful feeling. By the time the track builds to its apex — as Willson-Piper repeatedly asks, "Can't you feel yourself falling apart?" — the effect is strangely curative. A warm and intimate gesture from an underrated veteran, "Lullaby for the Lonely" shrewdly documents loneliness, even as it's washing it away.
