Song of the Day 8/17/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Monday’s song is #345:

Andy White – The Walking Wounded

On his 1986 album Rave On Andy White, the Irish songwriter went for a Dylan ripoff right down to the cover photo. But this track’s completely original, a beautifully orchestrated, organ-fueled, ferociously unsparing attack at both sides of the Troubles. “Maggie and the terrorists sign the death warrant, you can watch the execution for free.” The link to the alternate version above doesn’t have the choir who added their exquisite backing vox on the original album track, but look around, mp3s are out there.
