Song of the Day 1/17/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #557:

Randi Russo – Head High While You Lie Low

When the New York indie rock siren had her band together, they would playfully refer to this one onstage as “the Immigrant Song” because of the Led Zep echoes on the outro. It’s a characteristically scorching, three-part art-rock suite that builds to a dark Middle Eastern-inflected dance driven along by an insistent, macabre bass riff. Unreleased, but there are bootlegs kicking around.
