Song Of The Day – 3/5/11

Song Of The Day – “Marie Provost” by Nick Lowe

Supposed true story…”She was a winner that became the doggie’s dinner…” Marie Prevost (the correct spelling) was a 1920s Hollywood actress whose career fell to alcoholism. When she eventually died the police found her body with arms and legs partially eaten by her faithful dachshund who nipped at them in a failed attempt to wake her up.  This song comes from Nick Lowe’s 1978 debut solo album called “Pure Pop For Now People,” or if you are from England, it was originally titled “Jesus Of Cool.” Bad video…great song!
