Song of the Day 3/24/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #491:

Jenifer Jackson – Dreamland

This gorgeously dark, brooding ballad went through a bunch of permutations before Jackson brought the tempo down for the sparse, mysterious version on her career-best 2007 live-in-the-studio cd The Outskirts of a Giant Town. It’s about coming thisclose to getting what you long for and then…if you’re lucky, she’ll play this tonight (Tues Mar 24 2009 at 8 at Rockwood Music Hall).
