Above the law?

Ironic that Above the Law should post a list of its Official Top 10 Law Songs replete with links to YouTube video clips, none of which, I’ll wager, are licensed.

You have to wonder who voted in the poll. Heading the list is the Clash’s version of They Fought the Law and the Law Won with Bobby Fuller’s version of the same in at #9. And, much as I am addicted to Law and Order, you cannot possibly rate the theme in your top 10.

What’s your fave “law song”?

While with the Clash covers – ‘Police and Thieves’ or ‘Justice Tonight’. Or more elliptically, Magazine ‘Shot by both sides’. But if I had to have a favourite, Leadbelly ‘There’s a man going round taking names’. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ5kT1fzOvg

Excellent, thanks. I’ve thought of another one: You’re Under Arrest – Miles Davis.
