no81bob top 20 2011: No 11 That’s Entertainment – The Jam

That’s Entertainment is one of the least Jam-like songs they ever made, and probably one of their best known ones. Why? Maybe because it has a lovely 60′s guitar sound with even a splash of pyschedelic guitar thrown in, but for me it is the words.

They fall in to iconic but mysterious. Lyrics that make you wonder. Maybe even puzzle.

What is a ripped up phone booth? What does stale perfume smell like? What does the scream of midnight sound like?
