Song of the day: The Smithereens – "Blood And Roses"

January 23, 2012

The first time I heard this song (way back in 1986 at the tender age of 25), I got that feeling you get when you hear a song and inexplicably find yourself tremendously excited. I remember at the time thinking: “Wow. It’s got a great drone in it. I wish I’d written that.”
