My Top 1000 Songs #162: Rudie Can't Fail

Sure, I could be lazy and just post about 90% of the songs from my all-time favorite album, 1979's London Calling, somewhere in the Top 20 slots of this list. It wouldn't be all that hard to justify their inclusion.

But I'm trying to show some restraint. Better to maximize variety, pick a few favorites, and parse them out gradually.

Still, every day for the past 162 days I've had to stop and ask myself, Is today the day to deploy "Rudie Can't Fail"?

Today, the answer is yes.
