With the scandal-hit Socialist Workers Party in the Brixton High Street popping champagne corks to commemorate Baroness Thatcher’s death, Crikey pondered the soundtrack to their reverie.

First up has to be Morrissey with Margaret on the Guillotine from his 1988 debut solo album Viva Hate (“the kind people have a wonderful dream, Margaret on the Guillotine”).

And what about the penultimate track on Darren Hayman’s vehicle Hefner’s storming 2000 LP We Love the CityThe 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”).

Or even Elvis Costello’s mournful Tramp the Dirt Down from 1988’s Spike (“Because there’s one thing I know, I’d like to live/Long enough to savour/That’s when they finally put you in the ground/I’ll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down”).

And then there’s rocker Peter Wylie from Wah!, with his rather catchy 2010 solo release also called The Day That Margaret Thatcher Dies: “When Margaret Thatcher dies/ There will be no tears/ Save your sorrow for the people/ That she stomped for years/She tortured north of Watford with a vicious hate/So when Margaret Thatcher dies/Let’s celebrate”:

But by far the most Brixton-appropriate tune has to be Linton Kwesi Johnson’s ‘Di Great Insohreckshan’ documenting the 1981 anti-unemployment riots (“It was in April, 1981/Down ‘n on dee ghetto of Brixton/Dat deh Babylon dem cause such a friction/Dat it bring about a great insurrection”). Party down.
