Song of the Day: The Stranglers - Golden Brown

Since I featured a song from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels yesterday, I figured today would be a song from Snatch (note - tomorrow will not include any reference to Swept Away, in case you were wondering).

I had never even heard of The Stranglers when I first heard this song in the movie.  Years later, being an avid fan of Jonesy's Jukebox on Indie 103.1, I heard the song "Peaches" a number of times - he used to love to play that one.  However, I didn't even realize it was the same band.  "Peaches" is a very dirty (both aesthetically and lyrically) post-punk song, while "Golden Brown" sounds like a '60s psychedelic pop song.
