Nothing Ever Lasts Forever: Let Curt Smith Mellow You Out with the Perfect Jam for a Terrible Day Like Today

It’s just another rough day in this American life, what with Mike Pence breaking the Senate tie over completely unqualified Secretary of Education appointee, Betsy DeVoss; it’s a crushing blow to those of us with children in public school — heck, for anyone concerned about our country’s education system. I’ve been struggling since the news hit this afternoon, trying to calm myself with soothing music and venting to friends… and then I came upon this lovely video posted by dulcimer player, Ted Yoder. Featuring Tears for Fears’ Curt Smith and drummer, Jamie Wollam, the trio shared a wonderfully relaxing backyard rendition of Everybody Wants to Rule the World. With Curt totally laid back, and slowly swinging to the unplugged background music, we just couldn’t ask for a more lyrically appropriate, and chilled few moments.

Help me make the most
of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world”
