Ben Vaughn – Too Sensitive For This World

I’m a bona fide sucker for a guitar tremolo effect…throw in a voice that melts into the song and yea…I’m hooked. During the last part of the first verse backup singers come in and give it a short gospel quality.  That makes me warm inside. 

John Hiatt did the solo whistling and backing vocals. 

The song was written by singer-songwriter Ben Vaughn, off his 1990 album Dressed In Black. Vaughn grew up in the Philadelphia area. He has said that At age 6, his uncle gave him a Duane Eddy record and forever changed his life.

In 1983, he formed the Ben Vaughn Combo.  The band was together five years, releasing two albums and touring the U.S. several times.  They received rave reviews in Rolling Stone and People magazine and video airplay on MTV.  

Vaughn started a solo career in 1988 and has released over 17 albums. He is very versatile… he plays Rock, blues, jazz, folk, soul, R & B, country, Bossa Nova, movie soundtracks, easy listening and more, all with Vaughn’s musical slant.

Too Sensitive For This World

Ev’ry day starts with a broken heart
I must be too sensitive for this world
Well I know it ain’t right to cry ev’ry night
I must be too sensitive for this world

And the world is such a careless place
It’s a wonder, hummm it’s a wonder
It’s a wonder
Anyone survives

The clouds in the sky just make me cry
I must be too sensitive for this world
I don’t think I can last until these bad times pass
I must be too sensitive for this world

Solo

And the world is such a careless place
The world is such a selfish place
And life is such an awful fate
It’s a wonder, hummm it’s a wonder
It’s a wonder
Anyone survives
I must be
