Music Monday: Youssou N’Dour, 7 Seconds

Media

It’s Music Monday time again. Each and every Monday, though maybe not, I post a link to a song you can use your ears to process if you feel so inclined. Today’s is a song I hadn’t heard in years but I loved as a kid. Youssou sings in English, French, and West African Wolof.

Play Youssou N'Dour - 7 Seconds ft. Neneh Cherry

This was huge in Australia and Singapore in 1994, but according to Wikipedia it got limited play in North America. Consider this recified if you find yourself domiciled in the latter location now.
