Song of the Day 6/13/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #410:

Peter Gabriel – Signal to Noise

A scream for sanity in the midst of idiocy set to a haunting, south Asian-tinged melody from Gabriel’s career-best album, Up, from 2006. The crescendoing roar of the orchestra as they make their way up the scale is viscerally intense. Gabriel used to do this live with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, so there are a bunch of live takes of the two of them on youtube.
