82. “Johnny Appleseed” by Joe Strummer (2001)

When this came out, I didn’t realize that The Only Guy That Matters had not released anything that matters in almost 20 years. Looking back on it, and after having seen “The Future is Unwritten” (a great documentary about Strummer), it makes this song into a bit of a celebration of a comeback for a guy that spent two decades being seriously affected by the demise of The Clash. This song is a huge winner, one that will get your ass shaking and put you in a good mood immediately. It reminds you that few people can do it like Senor Strummer.

Hear it here.
