Post subject: Why is Pressure Drop so good? Reply with quote

When I was in my teens I got the Harder They Come sound track and fell in love with Pressure Drop. The original is probably the best version.
Robert Palmer's cover is pretty good - interesting piano solo at the end.
Keith Richard does a duet with Toots and it's all right.
The Clash version and The reformed Specials versions are also worth a listen but I think Joe Strummer did a better version in his final years.
It's just such a good song

I really like The Selecter version where they mix it in with Too much pressure

This is the most gentle version I've come across. I think it would work well in a film...

I love the way the crowd chant "Rude Boys" at the end Smile
