Song of the Day 8/6/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Thursday’s song is #356:

Aimee Mann – Humpty Dumpty

The haunting George Harrisonesque opening track on Lost In Space, 2001, the pantheonic songwriter’s meticulously inflected voice both soothing and absolutely heartwrenching:

So let us take the keys

And drive forever

Staying won’t put these

Pieces back together

All the perfect drugs

And superheroes

Wouldn’t be enough

To pull me up to zero
