Que Calor en la Ciudad sounds like a Should I Stay or Should I Go original

The Clash’s 1982 hit “Should I Stay or Should I Go” consistently makes it onto “greatest songs of all time” lists. The band’s involvement in the late 70s and early 80s punk and rock ‘n’ roll scene revolutionised music. “Should I Stay or Should I Go” has one of the most recognisable melodies from that era. Everyone enjoys thumping it out at a good party. But if you were around in Argentina during the mid-60s you might have heard that melody before. Twitter user Boya Rulli recently raised an interesting possibility. He said that the “Should I Stay or Should I Go” tune comes from a 1965 song by Argentinian singer, actor and former governor, Palito Ortega. That song was “Que Calor en la Ciudad”. Could “Que Calor en la Ciudad” be the “Should I Stay or Should I Go” original?
