Song of the Day 3/25/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Wednesday’s song is #490:

The Electric Light Orchestra – The Way Life’s Meant to Be

70s British art-rock meets noir Phil Spector with a little flamenco feel on this understatedly anguished survivor anthem from the vastly underrated if lyrically bizarre sci-fi themed Time lp, 1981. For this you need a good system: check out Jeff Lynne’s baritone guitar solo…and the kettle drum! The link above is to the youtube stream.
