Song of the Day 2/20/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Saturday’s song is #159:

Rachelle Garniez – People Like You

Arguably the greatest anti-trendoid broadside ever written: the New York underground chanteuse sarcastically goes after the suburban tourists and trust fund babies who poisoned her old working-class latino Lower East Side stomping ground in the early zeros. Very subtle – if you don’t listen closely you might think this is just a blithe, finger-poppin’ Rickie Lee Jones jazz-lite hit. From the classic 2007 cd Melusine Years.
