The Clash Lyrics
Mick Jones had a band called London S.S. with Bernard
Rhodes who would become later The Clash's manager. Paul
Simonon joined the London S.S. at its last legs. After,
they decided to start all over again in a new band. Mick
Jones decided to teach Paul Simonon how to play guitar, but
as Paul had never played that instrument, it was too
difficult for him. So they decided he should play bass,
"because it's easier and has only four strings", as Paul
They got Keith Levene as another guitarist and Terry Chimes
as drummer. More...

Lyrics change | Reviewer: Rob------ About the song Radio Clash performed by The Clash
1) It's not "evil will abate" nor is it "evil will await." It is "EAGERLY AWAIT", as in "eagerly awaiting" (sarcastically) the next crumb of misinformation (i.e. "illumination", which is a correct lyrics) "from" (which is also correct) the Ministry of White Wash.
2) It's not "stealing all" nor is it "resuming our" transmission, but rather "ZOOMING YOUR transmissions." I know "zooming" is a odd word choice, but that's what Strummer sings.
3) Not on the high priority, but (and I could be wrong on this one), I've always thought they sang "HOME GOT 44", not "home yard 44." ... again, I could be wrong on this one.
4) "With extreme prejudice THEY MIGHT terminate our mission", not "on a terminator" or "we're gonna terminate." Consider the Reagan/Thatcher-paranoia that spurned this song.
5) The "like buckets of venom" is clearly wrong. I have no idea what Strummer saying, but the next lines are definitely "They've got a mater plan... You build walls over there... And we'll come and knock 'em down." Putting this string of lyrics together, it is clear that "like buckets of venom" is out of place. (If it were Sting singing, I'd go with "Like the Greek gods tormenting Sisyphus" - LOL!)
Whatever the case, the string of logic within this and the next lines, in which the person who rises above the 'circle of destruction' is merely rewarded with a "job in the dirty old town" (which is clearly an antiquated vision of Industrial-age capitalism... but I digress) should be taken into account when attempting to determine the "buckets of venom" line.
6) The "by his will" sounds more to me like "by his word." Either way, it comes off sound like "by HIS", as in God, which doesn't jive with the overall theme of this song.
Argh! Somebody e-mail Mick Jones, Topper, or Paul S. for the lyrics to this one!

spiritual allegory | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Gates Of The West performed by The Clash
it's also a fairly obvious spiritual allegory, the east and the west, the sun rises and sets, birth to death, and standing in the shadow alone. they were transforming from being a garage band, as they put it in another song about the same thing, to being rock stars with obligations to a record company and fans.
Thinking&writing is my passion | Reviewer: Jitendra singh mertiya------ About the song Career Opportunities performed by The Clash
I write hindi songs,and have written many hindi songs of different moods,be it romantic,emotional,party,soulfull,inspirational. I am very despirate to get a chance in bollywood,please help me with this sir,just give me a chance and i will prove to world what i am.
Last line meaning.... | Reviewer: Stro Jummer------ About the song London Calling performed by The Clash
To clear up any confusion over the last line.
Firstly, as it appears here, it's wrong. The last word is not 'alike' but is in fact two words 'a-like'. It is taken from a song called 'Singing the Blues' which was a 50's number one single for London Rock n' Roll star Tommy Steele.
Steele sang the song with heavy inflections so the line sounded like he was singing 'I never felt a-more a-like a-singing the blues'.
This is evidenced by the fact Strummer often completed the lyric when The Clash played live, and he sang 'I never felt a-more a-like a-singing the blues' at the end of live performances of London Calling. There is some suggestion that he cut it short on the recording for copyright reasons.
Tommy Steele was called the British Elvis, which also ties in with the cover of the London Calling album, which as you will all know is an homage to an Elvis Presley album cover. The cover art of the single also refelcts the 50's Rock n' roll theme with two teenagers listening to records which include The Beatles, Elvis, The Sex Pistols, The Clash and Bob Dylan, in a 50's art style.
With the full lyric restored, the last line makes much more sense. The political and social backdrop to London Calling was of a City on the edge, and the lyrics were a commentary on what Strummer saw going on around him, enough to make him want to sing the blues ...
Sinners... | Reviewer: An Old Punk------ About the song The Sound of the Sinners performed by The Clash
... actually, I don't think this refers to Bob Dylan, but rather to Joe Strummer himself and his struggle of faith and identity. Rumor has it that the Narcs once did a drug raid on his hotel room and found him reading the Bible... and no drugs.
akwa ibom is popula | Reviewer: gwisey------ About the song The Street Parade performed by The Clash
home sweet home dat de word. com n see 4 ur self wat u wat u saw. akwa ibom ayaya dats true de new eddie say so we gat a new look. Iyammi yak nsem usem akwa ibom. Nke ka idong awo nam ata utop nam ata utop. Okon ye ekaete esuk nam utom esuk nam utom. Ku bor ufen aba afia awe. Akwa ibom yen edi idung mfia awe. Every body com along lets celibrat lets celibrat com alon lets celibrate. -Chorus...
Just sayin | Reviewer: W Bradford------ About the song Clampdown performed by The Clash
we got the clampdown here today in boston.
they had to do it.... to protect us all..
Stay off the streets those police told us..
dont be seen.. cops from everywhere..
FBI HOMELAND Sec ATF State and Local
and every imaginal attack weapon...
all in a lockdown......
They finally found the boy.. bleeding and
holed up in a boat...
We lost liberties today.. The boys fault of course
