Song of The Day #022

"Death To Everyone" by Bonnie "Prince" Billy

I've been listening to and rather enjoying The Wonder Show of The World since its March release, but when looking at Will Oldham's impressive Bonnie canon, I always have to go straight to I See A Darkness. There's something that album has--a devilishness of some sort--that nothing else he has made as Bonnie or Palace or any other pseudonym can top. And "Death To Everyone" is one of the highlights of that classic album. It's haunting, warm, and funny all at the same time--and it introduced at least me, and probably many others, to a new slang word: hosing.
