26. A song that makes you want to fall in love A political song

I don't like many of these last prompts, so I'm just going to change them as I see fit.

One great thing about Billy Bragg's early work is that he got his political message across by telling stories. Later, his political songs got more abstract and preachy, and I don't like the later ones as much. (The same thing happened to Paul Weller, sadly.) This isn't one of Bragg's best known songs, but it's always meant a lot to me. The myth that if you work hard at your education you'll get a good job has been proven wrong in my own life over and over again.
