The 30 Day Song Challenge Day 18 – A Song you Wish you Heard on the Radio

The Dead Flag Blues by Godspeed You! Black Emperor from F# A# Infinity

If I ran my own radio show, this track would be played.  It’s long, obtuse and quite pretentious, but also commercially impossible to play on a station of the like that they have in the US and the UK, bar maybe BBC 6 Music.  It probably has been played before, in its constituent parts, but I’d play the whole thing all the way through.  It’s one of my favourite tracks of all time, from the slow talking at the beginning to the final rasps of guitar at the end.  Truly a masterpiece.
