Song of the Day, May 8: Music for Evenings by Young Marble Giants

Today’s song is Music For Evenings by Young Marble Giants. Despite their limited output, this turn-of-the-80s band had an enormous impact on the sound of what would become alternative rock. This brilliant track from their sole full-length album, Colossal Youth, shows off their minimalist approach beautifully. Alison Statton’s delivery of this detached kiss-off song is perfect.

I don’t need you to love me
I don’t need you to care
Take your body from by me
Be yourself over there

Though you think you adore me
Secretly you just bore me
When I’m thinking of something
You always come up nothing

Enjoy this great song today.
