They say love can move a mountain

Quite by chance this week I discovered that Joe Strummer was born on this day in 1952.

As I love this song (even though, like many, I’d heard the Clash first), any excuse to put it on here is fine by me.  So today's date gives me a perfect one.

The 101'ers: Keys To Your Heart

Joe Strummer (John Mellor):  21st August 1952 – 22nd December 2002


  1. The Clash, collectively and individually, had (& continue to have) a profound influence on my life and it seems inconceivable that I'm now older than Joe was when he died.

    Thanks for marking his birthday with such a great tune.

  2. My favorite 101'ers track......

  3. Thanks guys for commenting. I was wondering what to say in response but, you know, I don't think I need to add anything more - your remarks are tribute enough to Joe. Appreciated.


Please come in, the door is open
