Song of the Day 4/30/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Thursday’s song is #454:

Siouxsie & the Banshees – Arabian Nights

John McGeoch’s beautiful, haunting, watery guitar floating floating over a pounding rhythm section, carrying Siouxsie’s eerily microtonal, accusatory vocals. From the Juju album, 1982; the link above is a youtube stream of the original video. Mp3s are everywhere.
