Cold War music

#1
I'm organising a Cold War themed party and would like some opinions on suitable music. I'm looking for songs which have a Cold war theme or references, such as Elvis Costello's Oliver's Army with the bit about checkpoint charlie. It shouldn't be just a 45-92 greatest hits! Any ideas out there?

when the wind blows - david bowie.



you could get a powerpoint projector - and just play the film on a wall as background entertainment - or Threads. no sound, just pics


I organised a Burns Night - pipers the lot, and had Carry On up the Khyber playing in the background - worked a treat

Breathing, by Kate Bush.

Bit `kin depressing for a party though

Mutually Assured Destruction Gillan (As in Ian Gillan)

Cant remember the band,but track is called Warfair ,and it`s on the Kerrang Compilation that came out about 1995.

Blood on the streets of Dallas-Dead Kennedys (I think)

It appears memeory is not as it should be

99 Red Balloons by Nena has to be the top choice. I remember it being very poignant at the time.

19 by Paul Hardcastle has periferal relevance, in a domino theory sort of way.

Lastly, what about Killing an Arab by the Cure?

"World Destruction" by John Lydon and Afrika Bambaataa. That'll get the floor doing a postmodern pogo.
