Dressed pints demon shrinks bread drunk dead drinks

201. Wire - "Kidney Bingos" (Mute Records Ltd., 1988)

After flirting with it for over three minutes of beautiful nonsense (though if anyone wants to find a narrative, please do), Wire reach the sublime simply by singing the words "high" and "low" during the last 40 seconds. The falsetto on "high" doesn't even come until well into the fade out, but the song has made its point by then.
