    Hi people!

    I am doing my EPQ on the subject of 'music and politics' (quite broad I know, I'm still in the early stages of narrowing down), and I'm creating a little question thing to find out people's experience around the subject.

    So if you could leave me some (sensible) answers then that would be fab!!

    Has music ever made you think more about political issues and/or current (or past) affairs, be they world or local?
    YES OR NO?
    If yes, please leave a short comment below explaining the particular tracks/artists, the subject matter and how it changed your way of thinking in some way.

    Thank you!

    You could take a historical approach to this. A few examples:
    Like the use of song propaganda through politics.
    Counter propaganda about war.
    The way music changed the lives of black people e.g jazz and expression of racial descriminton e.g the black fruits song
    Then you could look at football chants and hooligans..
    Theres so much you could write about and it could be so interesting 😆

    Thank you! Do you feel music has made an impact on you?

    Any additional replies, could you also leave your ages in your responses?

    "99 red balloons" by Nina (I think) would be an excellent thing to look at!
