Song of the Day 4/7/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #477:

The Secrets – How to Be Good

A legend in the making: dark New York rock at its purest and catchiest, a downcast, fatalistic anthem built around an irresistible minor-key hook, frontman Brian Stabile chronicling the story of a guy who somewhat defiantly refuses to resist temptation. True to their name, the band rarely played out and didn’t leave much in the way of recordings other than this track from the just-released, gloriously good NYC underground rock compilation titled Beefstock Recipes. It’s also on their myspace along with more intriguingly good stuff.
