Beauty in the World (3:49)

Cover of The Sellout

From The Sellout and 2 other releases

According to the Beauty In The World Songfacts,this song was inspired by Gray’s teenage daughter who one day Macy overheard laughing hysterically in the next room. “I was having a really bad day and I heard my daughter just cracking up in the next room,” she recalled. “She has this really great laugh and I didn’t even know what she was laughing at. I thought ‘at least she’s happy.’ And I felt at least I hadn’t failed there, because my daughter’s happy.”

    This song sounds like the female counterpart of a Jack Johnson song

    This video is similiar to Florence and the Machine music videos (a bit shamany and tribe alike), at the and it reminds me of La Roux hairstyles in 'I'm not your toy'. Additionaly i find using tambourines by musicians as a kind of newest fashion (tambourine-beat is used in many songs of Florence and Kate Nash). I wondered from what it came from? It makes song sounds retro but I can't remember when it was previously used.

    Great song on an otherwise worthless album. I heard this song and was stunned. Then I heard the rest of the album and it was a huge let down.
