Song of the Day 1/18/10

As we do every day, the best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues all the way to #1. Monday’s song is #192:

REM – Cuyahoga

A darkly Wire-inspired tribute to the river that caught fire, arguably bassist Mike Mills’ most beautifully inspired moment in the band with all those chords. Will some good band please cover this and give it the wild intense treatment it screams out for? From the otherwise mediocre Life’s Rich Pageant album, 1987.
