Song of the Day 6/4/10

In case you might be wondering, we continue to do a lot more than just count down the “song of the day” here – in fact, in less than two months, we’ll be done with that list and we’ll move on to the 666 best albums of all time. More news and reviews coming momentarily. In the meantime, the best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues all the way to #1. Friday’s song is #55:

The Electric Light Orchestra – Mission

Another one of Jeff Lynne’s brilliant, towering apocalypse anthems, this one from A New World Record, 1976, an alien guard “watching all the days roll by” on a barren, desolate, depopulated earth.
