World Party


As the Waterboys gravitated closer and closer to introspective, seafaring folk music, keyboardist Karl Wallinger left to form World Party in 1985, an outlet for his pop-oriented ideas. Coming from a background soaked in psychedelia, Wallinger's music has always adhered to proper song structure and '60s ideals without being overtly hippie-ish. Hits like "Ship of Fools," "Way Down Now," and "Put the Message in the Box" show his knack for sublime melodies and explosive pop, which gets more refined with each release.
