Techno D-Day and Tony Adams are probably the worst two songs on Rock Art.
It's great to see the post-childbirth bounce back to wrongness happening in real time.
It's like he's actively fighting becoming a sane and responsible adult. You go, Hoy!
Well now I have to know what you think are the two best songs...
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

I’ve overcome sleep deprivation and am back espousing my cutting edge opinions.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I love Sandpaper Blues but no one ever mentions it. I also totally love Evil Darling, even more so since we worked out the lyrics.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Willesden To Cricklewood gets a lot of praise and I fully endorse this.

Yalla Yalla is the best song on X Ray. That towers over even most of the Clash discography.

Hoyston. Probably this and X-Ray Style are my two favs.

Well Straight To Hell has always alternated with Complete Control as my favourite Clash song, so no.

I can hear the STH vibe in Yalla, but no, it just never grabbed me.

I like aspects of Yalla, but it is too static for my tastes.

Yeah, it doesn't have the mood shifts of and instrumental finesse of STH, not in the same league for me. But what is really?
