Song of the Day: Echo & The Bunnymen – “The Killing Moon”



This is one of the signature tracks from Echo & The Bunnymen, who will be including a new version of it on their upcoming album The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon, which will feature some of their famous songs performed in new ways. It’s a fantastic song, but no matter how much you like it, chances are you’re not as high on it as frontman Ian McCullough, who according to Songfacts.com once told Uncut magazine “You don’t need to read The Bible, you can listen to ‘The Killing Moon’ and get as much out of it. It’s the greatest song ever written.” The band is in a middle of a European tour in the meantime, during which they caused a bit of a mess when they tried to reschedule one of their gigs around a soccer game.
