Song of the Day, November 14: Another Satellite by XTC

Today’s song is Another Satellite by XTC. It appears on their 1988 masterpiece, Skylarking. Using lunar imagery (a nice complement to the pastoral settings used in most of the album’s songs), writer and singer Andy Partridge assures a would-be paramour that he needs no one else in his orbit. Combining strong instrumental work with Partidge’s trademark wry wit and sincere emotion, it’s a sad song of gentle rejection. Enjoy this marvelous performance today.
