Song of the Day 3/11/10
The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Thursday’s song is #140:
The Strawbs – New World
Future Beegee Derek Weaver’s mellotron roaring into the verse and then out of the chorus of this titanic anthem by the otherwise usually much mellower Britfolk/rock band might be the single most intense crescendo in any rock song. “May you rot, in your grave new world!” The centerpiece of their loudest, artsiest and most psychedelic album, Grave New World, 1972.
