“An’ weekends we’d go dancing / Down Streatham on the bus” 🎵

Stay Free, the 1978 song by The Clash (JOE STRUMMER, MICK JONES, PAUL SIMONON, TOPPER HEADON), makes a couple of references to Streatham when it was still a centre of entertainment in the late 70’s.

An’ weekends we’d go dancing
Down Streatham on the bus

It also contains the lines (referring to the Crown & Sceptre pub)

I practised daily in my room
You were down the Crown
Planning your next move

And if you’re in the Crown tonight have a drink on me
