Song of the Day 3/6/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Saturday’s song is #145:

The Fabulous Poodles – Suicide Bridge

Absolutely haunting, scurrying, morbid violin-driven new wave from the surreal British band’s Think Pink album, 1979. The way the violin solo trades off to the guitar is transcendent. No streaming audio that we can find; the album was finally re-released digitally as a two-pack with the band’s first US release, Mirror Star, last year, so now there are torrents out there like this one.
