Century City

Hey folks! Today’s episode covers the all out rocker, Century City, which is the last track on side one of Damn the Torpedoes.

I tell you in the episode to go and watch the Rock Band video game note chart for this song as it really gives you a sense of how much Ron is playing! You can find that here (Ron’s bass is on the left): https://youtu.be/yhwP4V4OCh4

I also talked about a similarity with David Bowie’s Sufragette City, which you can listen to here (I skipped forward to the part that you’ll recognize): https://youtu.be/zLnPd7lzT4g?t=159

Also worth checking out is the brilliant live version included on the Live Anthology boxset, which you can listen to here: https://youtu.be/Dzu69dBROE0
