Kevin Recommends: “When the Going is Smooth and Good” by William Onyeabor

William Onyeabor slays music. Seriously. He is so good.

But William Onyeabor is also a philosopher, wise in the wicked ways of humanity.

Just read these lyrics here from today’s recommendation — simple, yet potent:

And that is what I mean
And that is what I am saying
When the going is good
You will have many friends
But when the going is tough
Most of them will disappear
And they never come back
When they come back
They have come back to help in knocking you
Down, down, down, down

…okay so William Onyeabor may have been bitter about something when he set these lyrics down. But he set them down to one of my favorite, danciest tunes.

Whether your times are going smooth and good, or whether your times are going rough and tough, I encourage you to listen to this song and work through those feelings.

(Song recommendation by Kevin D. Woodall)
