My only request would be "Freeze" by the Models, but only if you have time. No worries if you can't fit it in.

I was just singing this John Cooper Clark song to myself earlier tonight because my partner Ruth and I were talking about the disgraced UK philosopher Nina Power who started out as a hard left feminist and thef years devolved into writing anti-Trans articles for the conservative UK newspaper the Sun, which just stuck this song in my head because JCC is like "I'll sit right down and write a letter to the Sun" in the first verse.
