Song of the Day, February 17: 5 Miles Outside Monroe by Vigilantes of Love
February 17, 2016 Leave a comment
Today’s song is an urgent tale from Vigilantes of Love’s wonderful Blister Soul. Singer and songwriter Bill Mallonee takes two tropes and weaves them into a cohesive, compelling whole. 5 Miles Outside Monroe is a driving song, a standard rock theme. Set on the dark rural highways of Georgia, it’s also a slice of Southern gothic. Rocking harder than the Vigilantes usually do, the track moves fast, its headlights slashing through the darkness, just catching the action.
Enjoy this well-crafted song today.
