'From Tokyo to Soweto / viva la musica pop'

In the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt mocks the idea that Paul Simon and David Byrne are criticised for using non-western sources in their music: "I fail to see how that's exploitative in any way". (By grouping these two together, he appears to ignore the specific circumstances of the anti-apartheid movement's cultural boycott of South Africa at the time of Paul Simon's Graceland [link].)

World Love is a pastiche of Paul Simon's pastiche.
