Song of the Day: Brian Eno - Needles in the Camel's Eye

Brian Eno's Here Come the Warm Jets was recently being mentioned by a number of bloggers that I read (@aquadrunkard, @mattpicasso, @daverawkblog), which made me realize that "Needles in the Camel's Eye" would be an excellent song of the day. I first heard this song on the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack and had no idea who it was, but I didn't think it would turn out to be Brian Eno.

Brian Eno's done everything - solo work and Roxy Music, plus producing '80s U2 and Talking Heads albums - and while he's often called an "ambient" artist, this song is about as glam rock as it gets.  Interestingly, his other contribution to the VG soundtrack is also a song from this album, except that the soundtrack version is sung by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.
