Song of the Day, February 19: It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference by Todd Rundgren
February 19, 2016 2 Comments
Today’s song is a lovely bloom from Todd Rundgren’s “Bouquet of Ear-Catching Melodies”. That’s the title he gave side one of his masterpiece, Something/Anything?, and it’s a perfect description of the six tracks. All resonate with his love of classic 60s pop, each filtered through the Todd lens. It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference is an aching love-is-gone track. Richly layered but emotionally pure, it rests on the title observation, which concludes with “if you really loved me.” Sad, determined, and gorgeous, it’s Todd at his finest.
Enjoy this beautiful song today.
