Alright, I'm just going to get my second rec out of the way. It as been an entire year since I joined the song of the day thread! And because of that I'm going to just rec my first song I rec'd, because most people weren't here for that and this song is still the second greatest song ever made.

"Video Hits"

idk if it will get much love from the regulars here but it's a pretty easy track. from the only album that makes me happy anymore
18Sonic Youth

August 18th - JohnnyoftheWell

Just one of the most beautiful things to come out of the noise or alt scene.

King Without a Crown"

This guy has been making great music of spiritual exploration for years, and although he has changed somewhat (he no longer wears the Hasidic garb) this is still probably his best track.

This is 100% pander.


Pander, Pander, Pander, Pander

It's actuality not a bad song.
Maggot Brain

August 21st - ArsMoriendi

"(I’m The Song) My Enemies Sing"

Yep, I was invited by my man Diva and I’ll deliver but I’ll be fucked it if I’ll pander to you sput slags and offer up Limousine from Brand New or some other such dull drivel. So I’ll pander to the brats who insist the shite they serve up is ‘ska’. Here’s the real deal.
28Church of the Cosmic Skull
