Song of the day

"Albatross", by Public Image Ltd.

I don't know how it would go as a hangover cure, but for clearing away the cobwebs from a fuzzy morning brain I can think of no better item. Wobble's bass is like aural wasabi, while Levene's guitar is like the knife in Philip Pullman's "The Subtle Knife" only more so. Lydon almost doesn't add anything to the song, but on the other hand without Lydon it would be nothing.
