Week 59 Summary Playlist Video

So this weeks there are some excellent musical videos to listen to. Love the Paul Kelly number Firewood and Candles as the video is like a cooking show with Paul! The great man has aged like a fine wine. Going underground by the Jam is another classic and a tune I can relate to the week it was published in Covid Island Discs because yet again the Johnson government increased its majority in the house of Commons. The lines that ring true for me in the Jam classic are:

And the public gets what the public wants
But I want nothing this society’s got
I’m going underground (going underground)

Finally the video imagery in “thru these walls” and “Russians” is also very good both songs covering rather dark themes of sexual deviancy and nuclear warfare respectively.

If you hover your mouse over the top right of this video window, you will see a button. Clicking on this icon will bring up the full play list of videos and you can scroll down to select whichever one you to play.
