Song of the Day 1/29/10

The best 666 songs of alltime countdown continues every day, all the way to #1. Friday’s song is #181:

Pink Floyd – Mother

This might have supplanted Hotel California as the national anthem of busking if it wasn’t so depressing. It appears in the movie conveniently just in time to wrap up side one of The Wall.

Song of the Day 8/2/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #360:

Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb

OK, this is supposed to be Obscure Music Central, and here we go with a classic rock standard. But every year, a new generation of kids discovers it – that hypnotic, slowly crescendoing David Gilmour intro, that visionary lyric:

When I was a child I had a feeling

Out of the corner of my eye

I turned to look but it was gone

I cannot put my finger on it now

The child has grown, the dream has gone

Download The Wall somewhere – the band isn’t getting any royalties from it.
