Song of the Day 7/6/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. It’s been a  somewhat insane weekend around here. In the meantime, here’s Monday’s song, #387:

Patty Ocfemia – Misspent Youth

Fearless, majestic, absolutely unrepentant anthem that serves as the centerpiece to this vastly underrated New York songwriter’s excellent 2008 album Heaven’s Best Guest, her voice indomitable and resolute over a lush bed of acoustic guitars that fade out gracefully at the end:

 

Not like old lovers

No permanent scars

No fixed agenda

No calendars

No heavy hand

Or privileged truth

No guilt or shame

For my misspent youth
