Song of the Day 3/10/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #505:

The Dukes of Stratosphear – Vanishing Girl

One of the greatest hits of the 60s…except that this deliciously twangy, slyly Beatlesque two-guitar pop hit was written and released by XTC in 1985 as part of their Dukes of Stratosphear psychedelic parody project. Love that booming Colin Moulding bassline. MP3s are around; originally issued as the title track from a three-song vinyl ep.
