Here are some of the songs topping the charts from music hot spots around the world.
Worldcrunch’s pick of the week is The Clash’s “Bankrobber.” The band's frontman, Joe Strummer, who died in December 2002, would have been 61 this week. The song chronicles the life of the narrator’s father, who “loved to steal your money” but would “never hurt nobody.” It also focuses on the drudgery of working-class jobs in Great Britain. This version of the track combines the original 4:33 song and a dub version that was added later to the group’s 1980 compilation album Super Black Market.
