Song of the Day, July 27: Sometimes I Don’t Know What to Feel by Todd Rundgren

ToddWizardKnowFeelToday’s song is Sometimes I Don’t Know What to Feel by Todd Rundgren. After the huge success of his masterpiece, Something/Anything?, Todd set to work on another ambitious project. Always restless and experimental, he largely abandoned traditional song structures and assembled a seamless flow of snippets, songs, and experiments into two full-side medleys. With the apt — and somewhat tongue-in-cheek — title A Wizard/A True Star, the disc received critical acclaim and cemented his status with fans but baffled the public at large.

Sometimes I Don’t Know What to Feel opens side two (the True Star set). It’s a fitting title for the disc; it also stands as a highlight of Todd’s long, creative career. Passionate and pondering, it contemplates the challenges of modern life, from the international to the mundane. Todd turns in one of his best vocals, lending the potentially ponderous lyrics a human sincerity.

Enjoy this great track today.
