Song of the Day 11/17/08

The top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues, one day at a time all the way to #1. Today’s is #617:

Television – The Fire

Long, slow, beautifully melodic janglerock: why Television was ever associated with the punk movement (other than that they got their start at CB’s) is anybody’s guess. This is a whole lot closer to the Grateful Dead, with a stinging, slowly crescendoing Richard Lloyd solo out that will make your spine tingle. Available at all the mp3 sites; if you’d prefer vinyl, good luck finding a copy of their 1978 album Adventure.
