L'autore di The World Turned Upside Down è Leon Rosselson. Il brano è incluso nell'album del 1975 "That's Not The Way It's Got To Be", realizzato da Rosselson con Roy Bailey. Quella dei Chumbawamba è una delle tante cover, anche se la più famosa è forse quella di Billy Bragg.

"I wrote the song in 1974 ... It's the story of the Digger Commune of 1649 and their vision of the earth as 'a common treasury'.

We Like the Flowers

The Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp Songbook

Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp was a peace camp established to protest at nuclear weapon being sited at RAF Greenham Common in Berkshire, England. The camp began in September 1981 after a Welsh group called "Women for Life on Earth" arrived at Greenham to protest against the decision of the Government to allow cruise missiles to be based there.

On 1 April 1983, tens of thousands of protestors formed a 14 mile human chain from Greenham to the Aldermaston nuclear power station and the ordnance factory at Burghfield.

On 4 April 1984, the women were evicted from the Common by Newbury District Council. However by nightfall the women all returned to reform the camp.

The last missiles left the camp in 1991 but the camp remained in place until 2000 after protestors won the right to house a memorial on the site.

Mothers, Daughters, Wives

The Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp Songbook

[1982]
Lyrics and music by Judy Small
Testo e musica di Judy Small


"I wrote this song for my mother (though not all its details are true for her), and for all the women of her generation who, it seemed to me, spent a large part of their lives waiting for their menfolk to come home from war. They were the women whose work during World War II showed us that women could do any kind of job and were perfectly capable of independence. For that example, although they had little choice at the time, my generation is grateful to them and I hope we have learned the lesson well. This remains my favourite of all my songs." (Judy Small Songbook 53)
