It is positively eerie how much Hoy sounds like Heston when he reimagines his many, many, many (many) poll defeats.

What a weird final four. You have one legit great song (GDM), two good but flawed songs (TC, YY), and one god awful song. So many better songs got the boot before this, it suggests a far worse solo Strummer oeuvre than is actually the case.
I agree these last four do Strummer no favours. One great song in BB, and three bang average ones. Rabies From the Dogs of Love pisses on them all.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Christ. How can you both disagree on this almost entirely but still both be the wrongest person on planet wrong?

There is more rock and roll attitude in the guitar solo of Rabies than all these four songs put together.

Ok, Trash City is a bit better than average for the lyrics alone.

Not true say the polls!
Don’t use my words against me! Even if it totally works in context.
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.
