Fastball - The Way

Whatever happened to American rock band Fastball? The trio made its mark thoroughly with second album All The Pain Money Can Buy (1998) thanks to the wonderful single "The Way". The melody and arrangement is a mix of pop, latin and rockabilly influences, and the lyrics are about an elderly couple who packs up their stuff and drives off without much of a plan, "an exit to eternal summer slacking". Although the band has released three more albums since, Fastball has not been remotely close to success again. Too bad as the three of them have indeed soldiered on, but they will always have a place in my heart thanks to "The Way" which is one of those songs  I never ever tire of. This is a 90's classic!

Watch and listen
