Song of the Day 7/14/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #379:

Graham Parker – Chloroform

Parker has maybe more animosity toward the major labels than any other artist, dating from his Mercury Poisoning days of the late 70s. This song gleefully and vengefully documents the decline, fall, and ugly dying days of an unnamed label exec from the point of view of an artist he screwed. From the excellent, sarcastically titled Songs of No Consequence, 2005.
