That's Entertainment

A frankly stinging critique of the sheer monotony of working-class Britain, The Jam's superb "That's Entertainment" struck a chord with many disaffected workingmen upon its initial release in 1980, with empathic lyrics like "Opening the windows and breathing in petrol", "Feeding ducks in the pond and wishing you were far away", "A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls" and "Watching your telly and thinking about your holidays". Check out the performance video here.
