Song of the Day 1/4/10

Every day, our Top 666 Songs of Alltime countdown gets one step closer #1. Monday’s song is #206:

The Grateful Dead – Bertha

The prototypical janglerock anthem, the Dead at their best and tersest – what a killer riff. Bertha (probably not her real name) was a groupie; this is an understated message to her to stay the fuck away. Look for a bootleg (and avoid the debacle on the Steal Your Face album) – may we suggest Sept 1991 at Madison Square Garden? Or else check archive.org.
