JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

Song of the Day 10/27/08

The secret is out: one of the reasons why we’re counting down the top 666 songs here, one a day til we get to #1, is that it means that there’s at least one small new thing here every single day. The ever-growing top 666 list is at the top of the page to your right. It was a busy weekend, lots to report, and a new NYC live music calendar for November coming in the next few days. Til then here’s #638:

Sham 69 – Hey Little Rich Boy

Classic punk rock from the UK, 1977, with a 60s garage feel. Lead player Dave Parsons turns in one of his characteristically incisive, all-too-brief solos behind Jimmy Pursey’s antagonistic vocals. Put this on a ghetto blaster, crank it and walk down Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg (or Portobello Road in London). The best-sounding version, of course, is on the band’s first vinyl album, Tell Us the Truth; mp3s can be ripped from the usual sites.
