Song of the Day 5/1/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Saturday’s song is #89:

Rachelle Garniez – After the Afterparty

Elegantly vengeful kiss-off balad set to one of the multistylistic steampunk goddess’ catchiest, most gracefully anthemic piano melodies. From her classic 2007 cd Melusine Years, our pick for best album that year.

Song of the Day 5/25/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Monday’s song is #429:

Matt Keating – The Night Is Still Young

Revenge anthems don’t get any more satisfying than this big, crescendoing, sinister janglerock song about lying in wait til the time is right. It might be the great literate rocker’s best song, and it’s unreleased and apparently unbootlegged – you’ll have to go see this live.
