Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Making Plans For Nigel" by XTC

I had my iPod at the New Year’s Eve party I attended this evening and at one point we played the XTC album “Black Sea.” Now I was fortunate to see them on tour in 1980 behind that album and little did I know at the time that it would be their last tour ever due to Andy Partridge’s stage fright. While spinning “Black Sea” at the party we decided that this song from the 1979 album “Drums And Wires” would be an appropriate song to start off 2012 since it looks to the future and concerns making plans. We’re all making plans…not for Nigel…but for the future. So Happy New Year to all and enjoy the first Song Of The Day of 2012!
