Song of the day: The Jam- Town Called Malice


In 1982, the Jam released their album The Gift. From this album, Town Called Malice would reach the number 1 position in the UK chart. It would be a double A-side, since Precious also became a hit! Quite some people suggest the title is a pun, referring to the book A Town Like Alice, written by Nevil Shute. Paul Weller said he had not read the book when he wrote the song, but he wrote it about his hometown Woking in his teenage years. I especially like the electric organ in the song! Enjoy
