UB40, "One In Ten"

Released in 1981, Birmingham, UK reggae combo UB40's ode to British unemployment figures during Thatcher's rule stands as a classic protest recording. Mournful horns flank prickly organ stabs and a marching rhythm that emphasizes the song's critical stance. The band, soon to score a platinum hit with "Red Red Wine," remind us here that the jobless simply become "a statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care." – Tomas A Palermo, Google Play
