Song of the Day 3/22/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #493:

Gruppo Sportivo – Mission a Paris.

The Dutch rock satirists are haunting despite themselves here on one of their biggest European hits, a spy story spoof with one of the saddest major-to-minor hooks ever, carried by an organ line that manages to be cheery and brooding at the same time. Originally on the 10 Mistakes lp, 1979; there’s also a nice live, mostly acoustic version with accordion instead of the organ on the 1997 Second Life cd. The link above is a torrent of the album.

  1. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossip and web stuff and this is really irritating. A good site with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for making this web site, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters? I Cant find it.
