Song of the Day 5/16/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #438:

Lloyd Cole – Rich

The wildly catchy opening track on Cole’s lone classic album, 1986’s Easy Pieces gleefully depicts a rich old codger abandoned and alone on the California coast, finally getting what he deserves, “forsaken, grey and giving it away.” The link above is an actually decent live version from British tv, 1985. Mp3s are out there.
