Song of the Day, November 19: Sulk by Billy Bragg

BraggSulkToday’s song is Sulk by Billy Bragg. He included it on the Accident Waiting to Happen EP released in 1992. It’s a marvelous dissection of a broken relationship, with the narrator asking his partner to be honest about where they stand rather than offering a chilly silence. Bragg is in marvelous voice, displaying his growing confidence and richer nuance of delivery. The track benefits more from the richer instrumentation of his mid-period work than many other songs, with the result being a splendid three minutes of pop mastery.

If you hate me, why don’t you go?
And if you love me, why don’t you let me know?
But you just won’t give me an inch, so
You just sulk.

Enjoy this musical gem today.
