My Redcard by Joe Strummer is a song about life. The lyrics are not about the bad things in life but more about what life's good about. The songs are written from a perspective of the singer who has found his calling and has found a way to express his passion for music.
The song's title “My Red Card” is also quite interesting as it's actually a card you could get from a casino. In my experience, if you go to a casino and ask for a free red card, you may well be turned away as there aren't many casinos that offer such. That's not to say that it doesn't exist however it is rare. It would make sense, if the card was actually given out in order to motivate people to play more games or win.
There are many uses for a red card in the context of music. One of those is during an instrumental. It is often used as a musical crescendo. It is also a great introduction to a song or a piece of music. A band who likes to do this often uses it as a way to start a new song, whether it's a slow song or a fast song. If they have a song in mind that they want to start off with the use of a red card could be the perfect way to kick it into gear.
If you listen closely enough, it is possible to hear the song changing around you in your head. The song may change mood, tempo, or the music itself may change and even the lyrics. This is what makes this song so unique and interesting. The song starts out being a tune about the death of a friend and ends up going on to be about living life to its fullest.
This great song also offers the listener a very important lesson about death and what we all must face. When it comes to life, death is inevitable. Death doesn't have to mean something traumatic or violent. It can be death, that simply means you are passing away from sickness or old age. It can also be death that is caused by something as mundane as a broken heart.
My Redcard is a song that doesn't try to judge people or give them advice. The song only offers a simple message to be thankful and look forward to the next time you will be faced with a death. Some people would tell you to think positive, and have hope, but that isn't what this song really about. The song isn't trying to convince you to be positive or believe in something either. It just reminds you that life is wonderful and to cherish every minute of it. It is a good song to play in the car or with your dog as it is a great song to listen to at any time of the day.
