THE CLASH - "London Calling".

The Clash se forme dans la banlieue de Londres en 1976. Il est l'un des groupes Punk les plus populaires. En décembre 2002,
on apprend la décès du leader Joe Strummer d'une cardiopathie congénitale. "London Calling" est le troisième album du groupe britannique The Clash. Le morceau est sorti en décembre 1979 pour le début de règne de la Dame de Fer - Margaret Thatcher. Un titre de révolte face aux crises sociales, économiques et politiques que connait le Royaume-Uni en cette fin des années 70' et début des années 80'. En 2012, le morceau est le compte-à-rebours de la compétition pour les J.O de Londres.

"London Calling"

London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look to us
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
Except for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growin' thin
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out and draw another breath
London calling and I don't want to shout
But when we were talking I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no high
Except for that one with the yellowy eye

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growin' thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growin' thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I, I live by the river

Now get this

London calling, yes, I was there, too
And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
And after all this, won't you give me a smile?

I never felt so much alike alike alike
