Song of the Day 1/14/10

Every day we count down the best 666 songs of alltime, all the way to #1. Thursday’s song is #196:

The Rolling Stones – Jumping Jack Flash

Trivia question: you know Jagger wrote the words, but who wrote the music? That would be Bill Wyman. And it makes sense, if you listen to how the bass looms out of the chorus, all those haunting, magnificently echoey chords. Pure low-register transcendence.
