The top of the mountain as far as favorite songs with the word "day" in the title. I've had a great time listing my ten favorite "night" and "day" songs. Here's my favorite "day" song. #1: One Fine Day - David Byrne & Brian Eno Quickly, this is not the Carole King song that the Chiffons had a hit with in 1963. No, this was never was released as a single. But it may be one of the most singularly hypnotic, beautiful, and stellar songs that David Byrne has ever had his name on. During the first Talking Heads break-up (1981-82) front man David Byrne did an album with producer/musician/former Roxy Music member Brian Eno titled My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. I didn't really care for that album all that much, so when I read they were doing another album I didn't exactly stay out all night in front of the record store, waiting for it to go on sale. (Those of you who remember doing that for mega-albums like the Springsteen live album will appreciate that joke.) That was a mistake. Instead of the sampling of Bush of Ghosts, this second collaborative album was phenomenal. The highlight was this gorgeous, amazing, stupendous song. I'm not kidding -- this song took my breath away the first time I heard it. I hope you find this song half as beautiful as I do. If you do, this song just might make your day. Thanks for reading. One Fine Day Written by David Byrne and Brian Eno Recorded by David Byrne and Brian Eno From Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, 2008 In these troubled times I still can see:
