Song of The Day #088

"Old Europe" by Robert Wyatt

What starts as a simple, weird, French pop song ends as more of a free jazz exploration, albeit a weird, French-tinged one. Such is typical though with Wyatt's music, which leans heavily on both old European styles and jazz. This track, from one of his best albums Cuckooland, showcases the man in his modern element, creating pop music from another planet that sounds like the past without actually sounding like anyone.
