MONO: “That’s Entertainment” by The Jam.

THE SONG: That’s Entertainment.

WHO: The Jam.

WHY IT’S HOT… Paul Weller at his poetic best…

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes/ Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume/ A hot summer’s day and sticky black tarmac/ Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away/ That’s entertainment, that’s entertainment

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight/ Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude/ Getting a cab and travelling on buses/ Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs/ I tell ya that’s entertainment, that’s entertainment

WANT MORE? Am partial to Noel Gallagher’s cover of another Jam classic, To Be Someone.

WORDS: brice
