Shipbuilding by Elvis Costello

‘The terrible irony that the Falklands War encouraged the shipbuilding industry…a beautiful, haunting song.”

I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones

“My karaoke song.”

Free Nelson Mandela by The Specials

“Up to that point I don’t think I’d heard something so overtly political. I was just a feckless youth…This was such a powerful, direct, call to arms in a way. It made me investigate more.”
