Song of the Day 2/14/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Sunday’s song is #165:

Elvis Costello – Charm School

A particularly apropos choice for Valentine’s Day:

You and I as lovers

Were nothing but a farce

Trying to make a silk purse

Out of a sow’s arse…

Didn’t they teach you anything

Except how to be cruel

In that Charm School?

One of the best cuts on Punch the Clock, 1983.
