The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 118

Friday, the end of the working week- and it’s rockabilly rave up time. The remaining members of The Clash were on the radio the other day and each chose some records to play. One of Paul Simonon’s choices was this humdinger of a tune- I’m Comin’ Home by Johnny Horton. Over the lovely, rapid strumming of acoustic guitars and a nagging drumbeat Johnny belts out his vocal, how he’s comin’ home to make sweet love to his woman, his ‘turkey dove’. I’ve never referred to Mrs Swiss as ‘turkey dove’ but now might be the time to begin. This song also confirms that Paul Simonon is a man of impeccable taste, but I think we knew that already.
