Top 10 British protest and political songs

1. Jarvis Cocker – Running the World (2006)
Originally written about Blair and Bush, I think this is more appropriate now than it ever has been.

2. Billy Bragg – Never Cross a Picket Line (1990)
You can’t have a list of the best political and protest songs without the king of political music.

3. Lily Allen – Hard Out Here (2014)
Lily Allen manages to reference body image, double standards, Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines and the glass ceiling all in one song.

4. The Jam – Eton Riffles (1979)
We still have old Etonians running the country, including the Prime Minister and Mayor of London. Apparently David Cameron is a fan of this song, to Paul Weller’s dismay.

5. Pulp – Cocaine Socialism (1998)
Jarvis Cocker wrote Cocaine Socialism after being contacted by one of Blair’s minions during the 1997 general election campaign begging for his support, to try and make Blair look cool. An angry Jarvis Cocker wrote this in response.

6. Manic Street Preachers – If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next (1998)
In 2009, it was discovered that the song was used on the website of the British National Party as the soundtrack of an article describing “the violence, hatred, fragmentation and despair” wrought on London by the “great multicultural experiment”. Obviously the Irony was lost on them.

7. Lily Allen – Fuck You (2009)
Her opinions on the British National Party are made pretty clear, she did also once dedicate it to the FIFA President.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFE6qQ3ySXE

 

8. Frank Turner – Thatcher Fucked The Kids (2006)
Turner actually regrets writing this saying “I regret writing the song simply because I started getting a lot of people coming to my shows who didn’t give two shits about my music. I’d just said something they agreed with. There’s a fair amount of analysis in that song that I would 100% stand by, but writing that was almost dipping a toe into the world of being a protest singer. I tried it, I really didn’t like it, and so I did something else with my life.”

9. Pulp – Common People (1995)
Although being one of the most famous songs of the 1990s, Common People never actually made it to number 1 unfortunately. Should have done though.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuTMWgOduFM

10. Plan B – Ill Manors (2012)
Ill Manors was written as a response to 2011’s riots and “society’s failure to nurture its disadvantaged youth.” The Guardian described Ill Manors as “the first great mainstream protest song in years.”

As everybody knew, Conway continued, the king was ‘a weak man and a sickly, not likely to be a long-lived man’. Henry’s increasingly frequent illnesses could hardly be kept secret for long: his chamber accounts betrayed how, on progress around his hunting lodges, the court would come to a halt in one place for weeks on end, a sure sign that he had relapsed. Conway recounted how on one such occasion, when Henry lay ill at his manor of Wanstead in Essex, he happened to be in the company of ‘many great personages’ who were discussing how things would play out on the king’s death.

I must also point out that I am in no way promoting mental illness in a positive manor. Mental illness is a serious matter that should not be taken lightly. THIS IS PURLEY FICTIONAL.

'iLL Manors' film review

When I 1st saw the advert for this film, I immediately thought: “this looks so typical” Typical of what, I couldn’t really say, so why I had that thought is beyond me. I guess my thoughts are the obvious reactions of being human. We criticise without enough evidence to be accurate, or even in most cases, valid).

With the above conclusion of my thoughts in mind, I thought “give the film a chance”, and I’m so glad that I did.

How good is this? Read on and discover for yourself…

Now remember I knew very little factually about this film. I knew that the main actor in the film was Asian (didn’t know his name) and that he had starred in the film ‘3 Lions’. I also "knew” that Plan B starred in this film. Actually, he doesn’t but then again, he does. Confused? Keep reading and all will be made understandable.

I remember sitting in the cinema tweeting words such as “gritty” and “great GRIME soundtrack”. I stand by these statements and include sentences that support the previous comments.

The main character in the film is Aaron who’s played by the excellent Riz Ahmed. For those who don’t know. Aaron is a Jewish name and Ahmed is clearly a Muslim surname, but there appears to be no conflict from the actor. If this was translated to the middle east, we would have real PEACE eh - #JustSaying as we say in Tweetland.

Aaron spent his life in the care system which clearly didn’t do a good job in caring for him or Ed, played by the music artist Ed Skrein, who both work together on the streets dealing. Another character worthy of mention is Chris, played by Lee Allen who got into the game from an early age due to his mum being into drugs and not having the ability to say “No” to the boys (if you get me drift!). Now Chris was a young skinny kid, man-handled by even the wind. However, as he gets older, he develops size and a menacing grin that would turn milk. Other main characters include Michelle (played by the very beautiful Anouska Mond) who’s a prostitute with a heart.

So now you know the main characters, here’s the plot…

‘iLL Manors’ is a multi-character story, set over the course of seven days in Forest Gate, London, where everyone is fighting for respect. The film mainly focuses on the characters I’ve previously mentioned, and their circles of violence, as they struggle to survive on the streets. Each story weaves into one another, painting an ultra-realistic gritty picture of their world which could end at any point. Each story will also be represented by a different rap song which is written by Ben Drew and sang by Plan B (are they one and the same?).
