Five songs for the Thatcher funeral party

On this sad day for the nation, Oscar Reyes suggests some tunes to help us all remember
8 April 2013


Street party following death of Thatcher

The Larks - Maggie Maggie Maggie (out out out)



Maggie Maggie Maggie

Out! Out! Out!

Heffner - The Day That Thatcher Dies



We will laugh the day that Thatcher dies,

Even though we know it's not right,

We will dance and sing all night.

Elvis Costello - Tramp the Dirt Down



Oh I'll be a good boy, I'm trying so hard to behave

Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live

Long enough to savor

That's when they finally put you in the ground

I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down

Newtown Neurotics - Kick out the Tories



Lets kick out the Tories

the rulers of this land

for they are the enemies

of the British working man

and it shows, while that bastard is in unemployment grows

and it shows, in hospitals, factories and the schools that they've closed.

V.I.M - Maggie's Last Party



(sampling Maggie:)

It's a party, It's a party... yes, yes, yes!
