On the Tube: New Song From Nick Lowe

Did you catch Nick Lowe on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last Friday? He sounded great. Lowe performed "Sensitive Man" from his latest album, 'The Old Magic.' The real treat, however, was for those in the live studio audience. After the closing credits, Lowe played a new unreleased song called "Tokyo Bay," and it's a real rocker. I was trying to think back to the last time we had a fun upbeat number like this from him. For some reason, "Shting Shtang" came to mind, but that was more than a decade ago. That can't be right. Nick, I wouldn't mind more like this one.

And just for fun, here's a REALLY upbeat song taken from TV in 1978.

Can you believe I had actually gone five weeks without writing about Lowe?
