The voting for OMT begins. Sorry, SRPs, I'm not gonna vote off the punk rock cuts ahead of this one.

I have frankly never understood the European hype
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

No USA no Clash.
No one more time for OMT.

Over the last few weeks OMT has blossomed from a rarely listened to number to an essential Clash track for me. Will be sad to see it go if it does this round.

. It's an absolute barnstormer
. Great call and response vocals
. Classic ending
. One of Topper's best performances, I love that faltering pause he does before the singing comes in

I genuinely like it but it is definitely given a higher place than a lot of Clash songs I like better. Like One More Time.

I can still vividly remember the first time I heard it and where I was. I had bought the LP and had to play it in my sister's room because my needle was fucked. It clean blew my head off when I put it on and had to listen to it about 5 times before I moved on to the next track.

You are god damn right.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

My mistake, very possibly next though. But yeah, great song.
