Song of the Day: 'Slave to Love' by Bryan Ferry


Along with "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs, this was the quintessential song of my high school experience. (I played "Boys and Girls" constantly senior year.) It was Bryan Ferry's biggest solo single, yet even Americans riding the British New Wave were still too dumb to appreciate it. What it lacked in sales, however, it more than made up for in film and television licensing, most famously in "9 1/2 Weeks" and more recently a couple of Ryan Murphy projects. They truly don't record songs like this anymore -- truly captivating.
