Song of the Day 7/21/09

Still playing catchup from last week’s computer meltdown. Lots of new stuff to follow from the tail end of last week: shows by Nation Beat, Bern & the Brights, Spanking Charlene and lots more – hang in there with us! In the meantime, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #372:

Bob Dylan – Sooner or Later

Big, lush organ-and-guitar ballad from Blonde on Blonde, a vivid reminder how Mr. Zimmerman’s talents as a hookmeister have always been every bit as formidable as his lyrical abilities. The way the Hammond hits that crescendo at the end of the verse…wow. Mp3s are everywhere.
