638-The Clash-Bankrobber.
1980-Number 12 single.
Best Bit-At 4.29.Dub time.
The lyrics aren’t meant literally,they are a continuation of the themes of dead end jobs and escaping oppression that run through so many of The Clash songs.
The band filmed a low budget video for the song depicting members of the band recording the song in the studio,interspersed with Clash roadies Baker and Green wearing bandanas over their faces performing a bank heist in Lewisham.During filming,Baker and Green were stopped by the police who thought they were genuine bank robbers.
‘Hey,my daddy was a bank robber but he never hurt nobody he just loved to live that way and he loved to steal your money.’

Music never lets you down
puts a smile on your face anytime anyplace
dancing helps relieve the pain
soothes your mind makes you happy again

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
641-Sonic Youth-Bull In The Heather.
1994-Number 24 single.
Best Bit-At 0.15.The best song ever written about a racehorse.
Singer and bassist Kim Gordon who was five months pregnant when recording this video explained what the song is about.’Using passiveness as a form of rebellion-like,I’m not going to participate in your male dominated culture,so I’m just going to be passive.’
Bob Nastanovich who is a member of American Indie Rock Band Pavement and big horse racing fan had told Kim Gordon about a horse called Bull In The Heather who had won at big odds.In the context of the song the horse’s odds probably represent coming out on top even when the odds are against you.
‘Betting on the bull in the heather.’

642-The Osmonds-Crazy Horses.
1972-Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 1.29 Don’t laugh, but if The Osmonds had taken a different path could they have been a great Rock band?
Singer Merrill Osmond said of the song,’We were rehearsing in a basement one day when Wayne started playing this heavy rock riff.I came up with the melody and Alan got the chords.’
The song’s subject was way ahead of it’s time.It’s a song about the environment,those ‘Crazy Horses,smoking up the sky’ are gas- guzzling cars,destroying the planet with their fumes.
‘What a show there they go smokin’ up the sky yeah.’
