Song of the Day 9/15/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #316:

Big Star – September Gurls

This one fell off this list and then fell back on because it’s so damn pretty and poignant. Don’t dismiss the song because it’s revered in the indie world, or because the band is overrated. This might be the greatest powerpop song ever written – and it wasn’t even a radio hit. Mp3s are everywhere: apparently it was on the soundtrack to a Fox tv show from the 90s.
