Song of the day: Deathray/"Now That I Am Blind"

Deathray is one of those bands whose CD you see in record store $1 bins over and over, and you're never quite sure whether to take the plunge. In this case, the answer is yes. Deathray is fronted by original Cake guitarist Greg Brown, who left that band in 1997. Deathray's self-titled and new-wave influenced first album, released in 2000 on Capricorn Records and added to Rhapsody within the past few weeks, includes the song "Now That I Am Blind," perhaps the best (and only) pop song ever written about going blind as a result of careless driving. Other recommended songs on the album include the power-pop gem "What Would You Do?" and "My Lunatic Friends." Enjoy (and drive safe)!

That song's about being in love, not a traffic accident, although the two are closely related.
