Song of the Day 1/9/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues, one day at a time all the way to #1. Friday’s is #565:

Stiv Bators – The Last Year

The Dead Boys’ frontman’s not-so-secret wish, never fully realized, was to be a dark powerpop singer. This is his finest moment in that role. Mid-60s noir style songwriting at its darkest and most affecting. Bators would live four more years after singing that this would be his last. Originally released on his superb 1988 solo lp Disconnected, also floating around in mp3land; the link above is a stream at imeem.
