Song of the Day 6/6/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #417:

Tom Waits – Everything Goes to Hell

We argued back and forth over whether to keep this one on the list. Of course Waits is great, everybody loves Waits. Which is why the debate arose – why give space on the top 666 to somebody so well-known when we could give a shout out to a great band that nobody’s ever heard of? In the end, Waits won out: this eerie, vibraphone-laced poison pill is pretty much his definitive song. From Blood Money, 2004; mp3s are everywhere. The link above is the stream at grooveshark.
