JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

Song of the Day 4/9/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Thursday’s song is #475:

Randi Russo – Drowned Crown Revolution

Hypnotic post-Velvets jangle into an aptly ominous chorus that stays just this short of macabre. It’s the closest thing to an actual call to arms that the NY noir rocker has ever written, a warning to anyone who dares question the powers that be:

 

They’ll hold you back

While holding you down

They’ll run the water

Over your polished crown

They want to see it tarnish

They want to watch it rust

Put your head in a harness

And watch you kick up dust

While they drown you

 

Unreleased, but it’s a frequent staple of her live show.
