Song of the Day, May 4: One More Day (No Word) by Todd Rundgren

ToddOneMoreDayToday’s song is Todd Rundgren’s One More Day (No Word) from his masterpiece Something/Anything? It’s a lovely ballad of frustration and patience. The narrator describes a series of events, noting that he never receives contact or clarification and cannot take action of his own.  Rundgren invests the song with a fragile tension, turning in a poignant vocal that conveys the mood perfectly.

All alone, all my friends are gone
Ears of stone, eyes gone blind
Too little to do and too much time
One more day, no word

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
