Song of the day is a daily feature highlighting a specific track that might be badass, catchy, mellow, or poppy. As long as it stands out for some reason it’s fair game.
The Flaming Lips – “The W.A.N.D.”
The Flaming Lips are a band that, for me, are hit or miss. Their songs are best when the band is really rocking out and not getting too bogged down in trippy sounds. Consequently, whenever I load one of their albums I always wind up keeping about half of it. “The W.A.N.D.” is an example of how great the Lips can be.
NOFX – “Creeping Out Sara”
In all honesty, this song is just okay. Where “The W.A.N.D.” is an example of a band at their best, “Creeping Out Sara” is an example of a group of wise asses at their wise ass-iest. It’s the true story of when NOFX lead singer Fat Mike met Teagan & Sara, it’s good for a laugh.
