"Mustapha Dance" as written by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon....
The sheik he drove his cadillac

Shareef
Rockin the casbah
Rock

He thinks it's not kosher
Fundamentally he can't take it
You know he really hates it
Really, really hates it

    General CommentEh. Yeah, it does sound like a remix of it, not an early version. I thought it was an early version because it had less lyrics, apparently I'm wrong.

    General Commenti don't think you get it punker_ken, a remix is about rearranging/adjusting/adding sounds in an interesting way. This is Mick Jones' attempt at being Lee Perry, twiddling the knobs and such. I think he did a pretty good job. The original spirit of the song is there, and bringing up the bongos in the mix is a nice touch.
    Perhaps you're too used to hearing the original radio version...give it another listen.

    General CommentThis is really cool, an early remix (not of this song, i mean an early remix if you know what im gettin at).
    It's in the history boys film, where i heard it first, and i thought it was the original wen i saw it, 'cause they use the begining, middle chorus-y part, and the end when they are revising/doing their exams for oxbridge really suits the part of the film, so great

    General Commentthis song nescessitates the invention of the word Bastardise


    Bastardise (BASS-TER-DYE-ZE)
    VERB TO MAKE SUCK TO TERMINATE TERM OF COOLNESS
    IE THIS SONG IS A BASTARDISED VERSION OF ROCK THE CASBAH
