Just had the following email from a teacher friend:
Am teaching a course on 20th (social) history…..I want to do it via protest songs and show them how they reflect the Zeitgeist/body politic etc and reflect the youth of the time.
I have The Specials (Ghost Town) lined up to do unemployment/racism etc, this gem from a little known Sunderland band
for the Poll Tax riots and Dylan (Masters of War) to do anti-war 1960s etc. Can you think of any more that really hit the nail on the head and sum up a social trend/protest movement/key point in 20th century history?
Well, AWers, can you?
