Most days I can take this song but today am really wishing Mick had taken the last line to heart before starting.

Any audiophiles out there:  The Clash on HiDef is excellent - you would never have thought.  I got the "greatest hits" collection off HD Tracks and it's quite impressive.  Of course it includes this tune that I even use for auditioning equipment now....who knew?!

"The Magnificent Dance", released on 12 April 1981 by CBS in 12-inch single format, is the dance remix of "The Magnificent Seven". The maxi single was released in the UK featuring an edited version of "The Magnificent Seven" on side-A, and in the U.S., where it was backed with the extended version of "The Cool Out". It is credited to "Pepe Unidos", a pseudonym for Strummer, Paul Simonon and manager Bernie Rhodes. "Pepe Unidos" also produced "The Cool Out", a remix of "The Call Up". This dance version "definitely capitalized on the funky groove of the original, adding in some very cool drumming."

All my early teenage years, trying to self-learn English by rapping on this song, as well as on the instrumental versions of Grandmaster Flash's The Message and Sugarhill's Gang Rapper's Delight. Still having gooseskin when hearing that particular sound of bass and guitar. Eternal.

That's not how I'm reading it. At least not the dig, just irony.

Nobody is happy with Rolf today.  Seems "innocent until proven guilty" does not apply in the UK.

edit: definitely guilty and becoming more so by the day.

Marx was skint - but he had sense
Engels lent him the necessary pence

Went to the park to check on the game
But they was murdered by the other team
Who went on to win 50-nil

You'll be given the same reward

Both went the same way - through the kitchen
