Video Musicale

London Calling è un album doppio dei The Clash uscito nel 1979, con il quale il gruppo si impose negli Stati Uniti. Il disco presenta una notevole complessità compositiva e mescolanza dei generi: sebbene non vi siano ravvisabili canzoni classificabili come puro punk, vi sono pezzi ska, come Wrong’em Boyo, insieme a brani pop come Lost in the Supermarket; altri generi in cui spazia l’album sono il reggae, il rockabilly, il rhythm and blues, il jazz. London Calling compare nella lista dei 500 migliori album secondo Rolling Stone alla posizione numero 8, considerato sempre da Rolling Stone come il migliore album degli anni ottanta, pur essendo uscito nel dicembre 1979.

Testo

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
