The Jam (“That’s Entertainment”)

The ironic title says it all, and the minimalist lyrics paint a vivid landscape that gave birth to the English punk scene. I find it somehow reminiscent of The Ramone’s earlier “Now I Want to Sniff Some Glue,” an American version of a similar sentiment, perhaps? I LOVE the acoustic punk of this song by The Jam, one of their best cuts ever (IMHO)!

    Nice cut. While it paints a realistic account of life, it does so with an aesthetic only this amazing mod band could create…. THAT is entertainment.
