Song of the Day 11/21/08

The top 666 songs of alltime countdown continues, one day at a time all the way to #1. Today’s is # 613:

John Cale – Half Past France

Every now and then, Cale will actually get specific and write a gem like this: a refugee on a train bound somewhere out of Europe contemplates getting out of the war zone, with considerable trepidation. And his family is still back wherever he’s coming from: will he ever see them again? Absolutely riveting, with some sweet lead guitar. Check your favorite mp3 site; also available on the 1973 album Paris 1919.
