Song of the Day 7/2/10

Less than a month til our best 666 songs of alltime countdown reaches #1! Friday’s song is #27:

The Rolling Stones – Sister Morphine

As gruesomely as Jagger recounts this deathbed scenario, it’s Keith Richards’ and Ry Cooder’s guitars that make it so macabre. “And in the morning you can wash all those clean white sheets stained red.” From Sticky Fingers, 1972.

Song of the Day 6/25/10

Every day, for a little more than a month, our best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues all the way to #1. Friday’s song is #34:

The Rolling Stones – Wild Horses

As we get closer to #1, you’ve probably noticed that some of the songs are getting kind of obvious. But they’re obvious because they’re so good. This might be the best love song ever written – and one of the saddest ones, since all the good ones are sad anyway. It’s the little touches, like Jim Dickinson’s plaintive piano fills, that make it that way. From Sticky Fingers, 1972.
