Song of the Day 9/12/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #319:

Bob Dylan – Not Dark Yet

Hypnotic existentialist masterpiece from his big comeback album Time Out of Mind, 1997, curmudgeonly yet poignant:

I was born here and I’ll die here against my will

I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still

Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb

I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from

Don’t even hear the murmur of a prayer

It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Mp3s abound but you’ll have to sift through some dodgy live stuff.
