Today's Song of the Day is Lana Del Rey's last track from Norman Fucking Rockwell - "hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but I have it"
Today's Song of the Day - Lady Lamb's "Even In The Tremor" - comes from my oldest daughter. I actually lifted it off of a recent playlist she made. A little familial music thievery on my part. I'm pretty sure she won't mind.
Sometimes what you need most is a cover song. Though I have to admit, back in 1981 I had no idea that Joan Jett's "Crimson and Clover" was someone else's song first. For me, it was her song that would also become my song, as favorite songs often do. I'd listen to "Crimson and Clover" while lying on my bedroom floor next to my stereo. The song would finish and I'd lift the needle up, return it to the start of the song, and listen to it again ("over and over").
Anyways, I digress. "(Nice Dreams)", the parenthetical sixth track on The Bends. Are there any other songs that you can think of that are completely in parenthesis? No other one comes to mind. Let's press play and have a listen to it.
