Song of the Day 7/8/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Wednesday’s song is #385:

Al Stewart – Roads to Moscow

Sympathy for the devil? Well, this is sympathy for the Nazis, at least for one clueless draftee who finds himself deep in Russian territory, about to be taken prisoner by the Soviets and probably scapegoated for everything Hitler did, General Guderian standing at the front of the road staring down the end. The massive art-rock anthem ends on a single ominous note by future Elvis Costello bassist Bruce Thomas. From the Past, Present, Future lp, 1974; mp3s are everywhere.
