Follow this link for perhaps the most inexplicable use of a song that Numero has released (sorry we couldn’t embed the video for ease, it wouldn’t allow us to):
Good Morning America “Song of the Week”
With no explanation, “I’m So Happy Now” by Willie Wright is set to footage of whatever random clips some producer found on youtube. It’s a bit disorienting, but strangely compelling. For Willie Wright, it is exactly the type of mainstream nod that his easygoing sound deserves. As out of place as it seems for this forgotten folk-soul to be included on hokey mainstream fare like Good Morning America, an alternate history can easily be imagined in which Willie’s music sits next to other “grown-up” [his words] singer-songwriter music, buried deep in the national consciousness like Paul Simon or Bob Dylan. If you haven’t heard Willie Wright, start with some soundclips here.
