People Change

***

Singer/songwriter Nick Lowe wrote a number of pop rock songs like “Cruel To Be Kind,” and “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love and Understanding?” that were big pop hits for other artists, such as Elvis Costello.

Lowe has continued writing and recording his own songs through the years, and “People Change,” from 2007 is one of my favorites. It’s a great combination of pungent lyric, catchy melody, and simple, but affecting performance.

  1. Gad, that’s nice! And he looks a lot–or reminds me a lot–of my first husband who just died a few weeks ago. About the same age also. Same hair. And a very good song! Food for thought!! Thanks! m

  2. I hadn’t heard of Nick Lowe before, but about a year ago, I heard him on the radio doing an interview, and in the course of it, he sung this song. I was so captivated by it, and I was very happy to find it on YouTube. In the interview he says he played the song for Johnny Cash with great trepidation when he had first written it, and Cash smiled and told him it was a great song.
