In This World (2002) – Moby

I was weighing up whether to add In This World to the project, so I listened to it again this morning. It’s mainly an instrumental electronic track which envelopes you – at least it did me. It’s debateable whether this track has aged well since its release due to its repetitive nature and the advancement in atmospheric – electronic music, but I found it still appealing to my ears. The song incorporates prominent vocal samples from Lord Don’t Leave Me by The Davis Sisters.

Lordy don’t leave me
All by myself

Sometimes I’m up
Now I’m almost level

18 is the sixth studio album by American electronica musician, songwriter, and producer Moby. It went to number one in 12 countries, including the UK, and reached number 4 in the US. The album went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide. Richard Melville Hall known professionally as Moby is considered by some to be among the most important dance music figures of the early 1990s, helping bring dance music to a mainstream audience both in the United States and the United Kingdom.

The music video for In This World features aliens from a small asteroid, who are planning a mission to the Earth bringing customary Earth greetings, including “Hello“, “Hi“, and “Hola“.
