London Calling

No this is not a threat to move to London in the wake of four more years of George W Bush, although I have read a number of blog posts threatining to do just that.

I went biking this morning and put London Calling on the iPod. It’s been a while since I listened to this record.

London Calling is one of the all time great rock and roll records. Recorded the year I graduated from high school, this record has been with me for the past 25 years and still does it for me. Check out this song list:

1. London Calling
2. Brand New Cadillac
3. Jimmy Jazz
4. Hateful
5. Rudie Can’t Fail
6. Spanish Bombs
7. Right Profile
8. Lost in the Supermarket
9. Clampdown
10. Guns of Brixton
11. Wrong ‘Em Boyo
12. Death or Glory
13. Koka Kola
14. Card Cheat
15. Lover’s Rock
16. Four Horsemen
17. I’m Not Down
18. Revolution Rock
19. Train in Vain

There is not a bad song on this record and at least 10 fantastic songs.

And those screams on the title track never fail to fire me up.

Plus it takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to listen start to finish. The perfect bike ride record!
