beats international - dub be good to me

(S.O.S Band, The Clash, Ennio Morricone & Johnny Dynell all manage to get sampled in here; but I usually think of it as a cover of S.O.S Band’s Just Be Good To Me)

The Clash - Train in Vain 

Friday, 5th February 1982, Logan Campbell Centre, Auckland (via) play it loud

Say you stand by your man
Tell me something I don’t understand
You said you love me and that’s a fact
Then you left me, said you felt trapped

Well some things you can explain away
But my heartache’s in me till this day

Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Did you stand by me
No way

All the times
When we were close
I’ll remember these things the most
I see all my dreams come tumbling down
I won’t be happy without you around

So all alone I keep the wolves at bay
There is only one thing that I can say

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me

Did you stand by me
No, not at all

Now I got a job
But it don’t pay
I need new clothes
I need somewhere to stay
But without all these things I can do
But without your love I won’t make it through

But you don’t understand my point of view
I suppose there’s nothing I can do

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand by me
Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Did you stand by me
No way
Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Did you stand by me
No way

I know in America people think it ridiculous that one can fight to the death over articles of clothing, but in these islands it’s a different story. Teddy Boys were rock ‘n’ rollers, so named after their Edwardian dress style, and punks came in and took the Teddy Boy jackets, which were lovely - long, finget-tip length with moleskin lapels - and ripped them and put safety pins in them. Johnny Rotten was particularly good at decorating a jacket. Teddy Boys didn’t like punks because they thought it was disrespectful what they were doing to their clothes. Which I suppose it was. And one summer in 1976 it was fairly dangerous to walk the streets of London dressed as a punk, especially on Saturday afternoons on the Kings Road, although you’d get involved with Teddy Boys on any day, really. It was their last stand, though, they were blown away by it all. They were the old thing and Punk was the new and there was never going to be a real contest.Joe Strummer

I called myself Joe Strummer because I can only play all six strings at once, or none at all.

THE CLASH - Original Clash Book
Found this at the library. It wasn’t hard. It’s big. It’s pink. It has ‘The Clash’ in large black letters on the spine. I like it.
