Song of the Day: The Zombies – “Care of Cell 44”

It’s never too late to release an official video for a song, as The Zombies proved recently. They released this lyric video for “Care of Cell 44,” which is the opening track off their 1967 classic album Odessey and Oracle. Rod Argent, who wrote the song, told Billboard the video is an animated version of art created by bassist Chris White’s wife Viv Boucherat for a book commemorating the Odessey and Oracle 50th anniversary tour the band is currently on. “The juxtaposition of fragments of the lyrics ( in my handwriting ) with Viv’s original imagery capture the spirit of the song in an imaginative way,” said Argent. “This is exactly what works so well each night as it plays behind us on the tour, to create a mood and heighten the audience experience.”
