Mixtape: The Best of Song Of The Day, Vol. 2

Lucky you, it's the second in a series of four floggings to a fading and seriously pissed-off horse -- The Best of Song Of The Day, Vol. 2! The songs on this compilation were featured as Songs Of The Day sometime between July 2013 and August 2014, fairly close to the blog's Golden Age. This might have even been that Golden Age. I have to go back and look at the microfilm to be sure.

My big favorites here include TV's Odd Couple (the first one) tackling Carly Simon, an even younger Paul Young extolling the virtues of toast, Harry Nilsson just spouting the F-bomb to piss off Good Housekeeping, Hayes Carll doing one of the greatest country songs of all time, a mashup of ABBA and Van Halen that's frighteningly close to perfect, Peter Ustinov proving what he was good for, and the guy who played manager Ian in This Is Spinal Tap doing a dead-on impression of John Lennon's primal scream era. Two hours of rub-your-nose-in-it musical stench. Have fun.
