She’s the Best Thing for Me

Fell in love with “She Makes Me Fall Down” by Buva (moniker for singer-songwriter Tom Wolfe) the first time I heard it in the movie The Heartbreak Kid.  Cut from the album All this Humming, the LA-based Wolfe actually played all the instruments himself, except for the guitar (Beck’s Lyle Workman).  In this song he blends the palpable sadness of Elvis Costello-esque vocals with soulful guitar notes, tight bass lines and synthesizer harmony to come up with one of the most memorable comedy soundtracks of all time.

MY RATING : “She Makes Me Fall Down” is my all-time favorite.  So… 5.0/5.0
