Song of the Day 8/30/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #332:

Midnight Oil – Blue Sky Mining

Janglerock heaven. This is a snarling tale about an Australian asbestos mine abandoned by its greedy corporate owners after they’d poisoned their employees along with the surrounding land and its inhabitants. Martin Rotsey’s all-too-brief, offhandedly vicious guitar solo after the bridge is exhilarating. “Nothing’s as precious as a hole in the ground.” Title track to the 1992 album, mp3s are everywhere.
