Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #177 – “Daily Battles,” from Motherless Brooklyn
177. “Daily Battles,” from Motherless Brooklyn
Our second Thom York song. This one from just 2019. Motherless Brooklyn is a film that got totally overlooked from the moment it came out, but this song definitely stuck out. It’s in the trailer for the film, even, but I think most people didn’t notice because they were so fixated on Edward Norton doing the Tourette’s thing. But this song is pretty great. It’s moody and very Thom Yorke, but also somehow fits the entire tone of the film.
