Song of the Day 4/17/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Saturday’s song is #103:

Elvis Costello – Goon Squad

Listen to this on headphones – the whispery doubletracked vocals on the chorus are absolutely homicidal. Costello’s worn a lot of stylistic hats over the decades, but he’s always been as reliable an anti-fascist as you could ever want on your side. From what may be his best album, 1979’s Armed Forces.
