The Smiths - I Want The One I Can’t Have
"Do you want to make tea at the BBC ?"
I always told myself i would actually love this job. I would be the cool tea guy, dressed sharp, bringing you your boiling hot Earl Grey along with an offensive comment concerning the boss that you loathe and offering you a cigarette when you crave one.
Sick tune from the French legendary punk act Métal Urbain. “Pop Poubelle” was first released as the B-side of the bands third single “Hystérie Connective” (Rough Trade, 1978),then to be reissued on numerous compilations and bootlegs such as “Les Hommes morts sont dangereux” (1981) or “Anarchy in Paris” (2004).
The track with its outrageous and often offensive lyrics is a violent attack on the conformity of the rock and pop circles in the late 70’s.
