Music with meaning

You might have spotted that in the first programme of the new series we played out with a track appropriate to the week's news. This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us by Sparks was a natural fit with the announcement that the battle between Clinton and Obama was finally at an end.

This week Elbow and Richard Hawley will be in the studio, performing The Fix, a song that includes the phrase "There's a nag gonna dance home at Epsom". Not, I should stress that we are suggesting anything dodgy went on at the Epsom Derby, but again it was a pleasing match.

Next week we will have Neon Neon in the studio and we're open to suggestions of songs that would hit a topical nerve - either penned by the band or another artist. Let us know if anything occurs to you.
