Song of the day: Mississippi – "Kings Of The World"

Here’s Mississippi with their top 10 hit, “Kings Of The World” (1972):


To me, “Kings Of The World” has always had an indefinable “mood”. Back in the days of vinyl, I had it on a K-Tel compilation and it stood out from the rest of the songs because it sounded so mysterious compared to all the poppy tracks. I guess the closest word I can think of to describe it is “haunting.” (Another song with that same ‘mood’ is The Beatles‘ “Cry Baby Cry.”)

And it’s still haunting after all these years.
