Song of the Week – 66, Afghan Whigs


Valentine’s Day is just a few days from now so I thought I’d make today’s SotW appropriate for the occasion. I’m not going for some sappy love song. I’m going sensual with Afghan Whigs “66.” It is from their final album 1965 that confusingly was released in 1998.

“66” has a terrific opening line that sets the mood for the song:

You walked in
Just like smoke

The Afghan Whigs hailed from Cincinnati, OH and reached the height of their popularity during the grunge rock period of the 90s. The band was led by Greg Dulli who handled guitar and vocal duties and was also the band’s primary songwriter.

Be sure to put this one on your Valentine playlist.

Enjoy… until next week.
