I wouldn't say I can't stand any Clash songs, but there are many I skip over or tune out when I hear them.

Lover's Rock
A lot of songs on S!, mostly side 6
Crooked Beat
Should I Stay or Should I Go <--- I blame this on the radio. Once upon a time I used to like it.

The Card Cheat - overwrought Bruuuce-meets-Spector dud. It's awful.
The Card Cheat came to my mind too, although hate is too strong a word. For me, it's where LC loses steam. I think Lover's Rock gets a bad rap because it has the unfortunate fate of following the song that sucks all the energy out of the room, which makes it seem more tedious than it is. The last half of Lover's Rock is killer.

It's weird that you describe such a cool sounding song and then claim it's bad.
:cool:

Card Cheat is stellar.
Fucking love Card Cheat.

Joe's vocals always spoke quite highly of you. Chew on that, ma'am, chew on that.

I like Lose This Skin

Well said! CC has all the ingredients of a decent song, just too much of everything (over-emotive, over-produced, etc.) and it doesn't add up to go anywhere. Also, does London Calling really need two songs about cheating at gambling?

I'm fine with Lover's Rock, especially Mick's squeally guitar sound; I always skip CC to get to it.

Everything about Lose This Skin is great, even the vox.

I think I like the sound of The Card Cheat, but not one of Joe's stronger lyrics. I almost want to call them a bit shoddy and meandering - almost like an unfinished sketch versus well written verse.

I love Lose This Skin but I think it would have been better off just being released under Tymon's own name rather than the "Clash" moniker.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
