Song of the Day 2/18/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Today’s song is #525:

Elvis Costello – Episode of Blonde

The King at his vitriolic best, an endless catalogue of a pinup’s vices and failings and ultimately a slam at the corporate media who still believe that the Paris Hiltons of the world are sufficient to distract us while the Madoffs rob us blind. Originally released on the 2002 When I Was Cruel, the best version of this song is on the live cd My Flame Burns Blue from three years later.
