This week—a bunch of songs that were relevant to happenings during the year just passed. Songs that inspired or were inspired by movement and by happenings in the electoral politics both here and in Europe. And 2015 was a year with an astonishing number of centenary observances—of the deaths and births of key figures in the culture of protest—and some historical events that have been commemorated in song.
And there will be surprises.
