    Rock The Casbah might be more popular, and Should I Stay Or Should I Go is a contender too.

    Forget about the meaning of the song. Imagine that it plays emotions instead of instruments. What emotions it plays?

    A sense of unavoidability? A sense of ominosity? a sense of self abandonment? playfulness?
    Closer to ominous, probably, as it deals with the possibility of a flood, but it also ties into what happened to London during WWII as well as possible nuclear errors and what not. So it's not exactly a happy song. Other tracks on the album are though, which makes the title track interesting to me. It's also interesting to me that the song was a hit, when it clearly pushes back against commercialism.
