Song of the Day 7/3/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Friday’s song is #390:

Jenifer JacksonDown So Low

This is just about the best breakup song ever written. Not maudlin at all, just haunting and resigned and absolutely heartbroken, Jackson’s gentle, wounded vocals nebulous and somewhat shellshocked over a swaying Ticket to Ride beat and pulsing layers of guitar and keys. From her So High cd, 2005. The link in the title above is the stream at last.fm
