Song of the Day 6/7/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #416:

Pink Floyd – Pigs

Here’s another band that was extremely well represented on this list when we first dug it out of the drawer and decided to make it a daily feature here.  Then we then decided to repopulate the list with brilliant obscurities in the place of songs from the accepted canon. So you won’t see Atomheart Mother, or Shine on You Crazy Diamond, or even Echoes here. Hubris? Without a doubt. But this one we had to keep, the whole band at the absolute top of their game, towering, majestic, hypnotic and raging, all the way through to one of the most sonically ugly endings in the history of recorded music. From Animals, 1977; mp3s are everywhere.
