Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

*A reference to “the first existential country song.” (Ignore the first ten seconds – it’s a little what you call saccharine.)

Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” ranked “Wichita Lineman” at #192.

but it don’t look like rain 
And if it snows that stretch down south 
won’t ever stand the strain 
And I need you more than want you 
and I want you for all time 
And the PG&E Lineman is still on the line

**Yes, larger than the U.S. Capitol’s. On purpose.
