You must admit that some pinko's/pacifists have a good ear for music; what's your favourite leftie tune?

I nominate this one, very tuneful celebration of the dishonourable conduct of some of the lowest forms of life ever to disgrace the RN (tried to hand over the fleet to the French during the Napoleonic war), but a bloody good tune.

Not completely according to the thread title, but The Fields of Athenry is available as everything from a dirge to a stomp-along.
