Song of the Day 1/7/09

Technical difficulties abounding, yet every day, our Top 666 Songs of Alltime countdown gets one step closer #1. Thursday’s song is #203:

Elvis Costello – Black Sails in the Sunset

Graceful, haunting, understatedly vengeful, with some of pianist Steve Nieve’s finest work. “Do you make me sick, or was I just forcefed?” Originally released on the Tokyo Storm Warning ep in 1986, since then anthologized several times.
