Song of the Day: 'Total Control' by the Motels

I would argue it's one of the best songs of all time. Martha Davis remembers "Total Control" this way:
“I wrote the lyrics to be sung as a punk version before one of the brothers (Jeff?) wrote the chord progression and I slowed down the lyrics to match the chords. That’s why that song is so cool….it’s full of rage but it’s beautiful.”

Of all the music "Something Wild" turned me onto (the feelies!), this one is near the top and it was a lot easier to find than "hippies come to Soweto".
