Song of the Day – “Stupefaction” – Graham Parker

The sun is burnin’
It never changes
The people look up
With nothing in their eyeballs

They stare at billboards
As if for guidance
There’s something wrong here
I can’t put my finger on

Same thing, same way
Everyday stupefaction, oh yeah

The angriest of the “angry young men” from the UK in the late seventies gives us a song that’s still appropriate 34 years later. Instead of looking up at billboards, though, we’re looking down at smartphones.

From The Up Escalator.
