Song of the Day 1/2/10

We’ve resolved to keep up our daily tradition counting down the Top 666 Songs of Alltime, all the way to #1, and two days into our resolution, we haven’t broken it. Wish us luck. Saturday’s song is #208:

Roxy Music – More Than This

“More than this, there is nothing.” In a sense, Bryan Ferry’s quintessential song. Uninhibited, fearless, yet knowing there will be a comedown. Lush atmospheric beauty from the Avalon lp, 1982.

  2. the song is beautiful, but the video is twisted and scary. If Hitler had survived WW2 and then become a rock star this is the type of material he would be producing. Ferry always had a strange sense of humor.
