'Towers of London' | Reviewer: Will | 11/23/09

This song about London's notorious council estates (the U.K. equivalent of housing projects) is among the finest on 'SANDINISTA!' and in The Clash's catalogue as a whole. Note the quote from 60s folk singer and Bob Dylan rival Phil Ochs toward the end: "Allianza dollars are spent/To raise the towering buildings/For the weary bones of the workers/To be strong in the morning/To go back again."
