Maggie T's Birthday

Gawd, we forgot to mention that she turned 80 this week. She is well known around the world from all the songs that were written about her in the early 1980's such as:
  • Stand Down Margaret - The Beat
  • Tramp The Dirt Down - Elvis Costello
  • Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards - Billy Bragg
  • Two Million Voices - Angelic Upstarts
  • Taking Tea With Pinochet - Christy Moore

'And when they finally lay you in the ground,
I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down'
- Elvis Costello

Ah refreshing lyrics. When are we gonna get some good music in this country?
