Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1 – we do this to keep the front page here fresh. More reviews coming soon. Monday’s song is #415:

The Dream Syndicate – Now I Ride Alone

Steve Wynn’s haunting, allusive backbeat widower anthem from the surprisingly mediocre Out of the Grey lp, 1986. As good as the studio version is, there are transcendent live versions out there. Here’s one from archive.org; the link above is an even better one from a bit later on. Wynn and his band the Miracle 3 are playing the Dream Syndicate’s classic 1984 album Medicine Show from start to finish at the Bell House at 7:30 PM on June 27.
