Song of The Day #110

"Dizzy Dizzy" by Can

On "Dizzy Dizzy", Can brings the funk, albeit funk of the spaced-out-avant-garde variety. Among their first tracks sans Damo Suzuki or Malcolm Mooney, the wacky German members of Can make due with their own voices, and, as it turns out, Michael Karoli and co. are pretty good singers themselves. Much is written about Can and their influence because, well, it's just so prevalent--but songs like "Dizzy Dizzy" kind of elevate Can above that "these guys are really influential" stage. Can is arguably the most interesting and creative band ever. (And, it's worth noting, they now join Sinatra, Waits, and Alice Cooper as the only artists to claim two SOTDs.)
