    i always figured mick wrote the lyrics for this, but it turns out joe did, possibly with mick in mind, i guess joe probably wrote the lyrics for beyond the pale too (which seem very auto-biographical for mick a well)

    Always reminds me of that scene in The Hurt Locker, where he's lost in the cereal aisle.

    Back in my "El Duderino" days (full beard, long curly hair) I was haunting the Snack Isle in my local market, deciding between Oreos and Nutter Butters, when a little girl turned to her mum, tugged on her skirt and said, "Mom, it's Jesus Christ." True story.

    this is the most melancholic song I know of. [2] Damn, if that was the case for myself, I'd be happy all the damn time. Listen to some Blind Willie Johnson and read his bio some time then let me know.

    I'm probably the only one who thinks this is the weakest song on an amazing album

    This is the vanilla tape version right? the vanilla tapes have some awesome alt takes of London Calling!! Love the clash jams on it and the Black Market Clash lp. Wish they'd release just jams of Clash music from those two lp's and the mini movie which has some extra Clash jams that I believe have yet to be released in any format.......
