Song of the Day 5/31/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #423:

Mary Lee’s Corvette – Herculetta

This is a song about hubris – and about being casually crushed by a world that couldn’t care less. That’s what’s so cool about frontwoman Mary Lee Kortes’ songwriting – as with Elvis Costello, there are so many levels of meaning in everything she writes. Nicely ornate ELO-ish chamber-pop arrangement, too. From the 700 Miles cd, 2004.
