Song of the Week: "Everyday"

I really haven't had enough Slade in this feature. They've really sort of been relegated to relic status on much of the internet, but just sit with a singles collection: these guys are one of the best bands of their era. The great thing about glam rock is that it borrowed and reinterpreted so much of older styles of rock--prefiguring the same thing punk music did later--that glam always tends to sound fresh and modern.

Of course, here I am, posting a sweet ballad rather than a thumping rock workout, but it's a damn beautiful song. I think I actually heard this on a commercial recently and thought, "Man, I need to hear that again. That's just a lovely little tune." So here it is. Have a nice Sunday. Slade, 1974.
