To close out our celebration of my favorite band, my top 20 favorite songs of theirs. Today: #20-11!
THE BERKELEY PLACE TOP 20 CLASH SONGS OF ALL TIME
20. The Guns of Brixton (London Calling, 1979)
The first song composed and sung by bass player Paul Simonon, who in many ways was the band’s George Harrison: A guy who had a lot say and play, but was completely overshadowed by the two more prominent bandmates.
Further listening: Tommy Gun (Give ‘Em Enough Rope, 1978)
Covers and samples: Starting with one of my faves, from Beats International (Fatboy Slim’s original band)….
