Song of the Day, March 31: This Will Be Our Year by the Zombies

ZombieYearToday’s song is a charming highlight from the Zombies’ final album, the brilliant Odessey and Oracle. Written by bass guitarist Chris White, it’s a ray of optimism amid the predominantly dark and introspective songs on the disc.

Colin Blunstone turns in a lovely vocal, sounding happy without overselling the cautious joy of the song. The band provide a tight, timeless pop backdrop and a bright horn section emphasizes the rays of sun breaking through the clouds.

This will be our year
Took a long time to come

Enjoy this lovely song today.
