The Stranglers first informed me of Trotsky’s cause of death. Elvis Costello later alerted me to the fact New York was once called New Amsterdam. But before both of those I have to thank the magnificent Abba for introducing me to the key flash-points of early 19th Century military history. My! My!

In the early 1980s, I was alerted to a hitherto unknown venue, where frivolity, vitamin D, and free cocktails were in abundant supply.

Thank you Wham! for the tip and offering to take me there.

In 1976 Bob Dylan explained to me the black boxer, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, was innocent of murder. He was right. 12 years later the man's conviction was quashed.

Dylan told me a lot of things but I still don't get all of them. The songs still live on.

Sheryl Crow taught me that Aldous Huxley died in November 1963 on the same day as John F Kennedy was murdered. The very next day Dr. Who's first ever episode was aired on TV. One of Dr Who's oft repeated sayings is "Run" and Sheryl's record that pulled all this together for me is...

Surely Billy Joel and We Didn't Start the Fire is the ultimate authority on history telling music?

(As an aside, has anyone heard Fall Out Boy's attempt to bring the song up to date? Its a worthy attempt, if not brilliantly pulled off).

And quiz question - as well as We Didn't Start the Fire, what other song, released in the 80s, references Johnnie Ray?

Two of my (14yo) sister's friends were on holiday there and were thrilled to be asked to tip George off his lilo during the video. My sister's jealousy stopped her speaking to them for about a month!
