I freaking LOVE this album.
Just thought i'd share that with you all.
train in vain is in my top 5 songs ever.
but probably Hateful just now. Yeah, train in vain is rather amazing!
I've been on a massive Clash binge lately, having rewatched The Future Is Unwritten. Strummer's first album with the Mescaleros is on my stereo right now - it's reeeeeally fucking good. I shall be stockpiling the other two once I get paid, methinks...
Top 5 Clash songs, anyone?
2. Card Cheat
3. Train in Vain
4. London Calling
5. Rudie Can't Fail
1 Guns Of Brixton
2 Train In Vain
3 London Calling
5 The Right Profile
Incredible to think Guy Stevens hadn't done any proper production for a good decade before London Calling and was essentially a washed up alkie.
1. train in vain
2. white riot
3. know your rights
4. janie jones
5. rudie can't fail
although that was really hard. i love overpowered by funk and revolution rock and the card cheat loads too. TOUGH.
2. Complete Control
3. The Card Cheat
4. Safe European Home
...wait, that means no room for Washington Bullets. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
not from my direction though. brilliant, classic album.
my top 3 songs from it:
Train in Vain
Bran New Cadillac
the one i always skip:
Jay A Zed Zed
How can you skip it?! :D
he sounds like someone has dared him to 'sing like a spaz'
that song is brilliant.
that's the weakest on the album by my reckoning
I love Guns of Brixton though.
And Death or Glory.
I'm not a big Clash fan though. They make me cringe a bit sometimes.
they are really cheesy at points but i love it.
"raise a toast to saint joe strummer / i think he might have been our only decent teacher"
but it's still SO GOOD. bastards :D
