Antiwar songs by Tom Fairnie

Tom Fairnie is an Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter. In his first song, Rockets Over Babylon, 'the chorus recalls the bombing of Berlin, Hanoi and the Lebanon, which is used to emphasise the fact that perhaps this isn't a strategy that works. The song isn't meant to be overtly anti-war but is meant more as a comment on the wisdom of a failed foreign policy that stretches back to the crusades.' www.tomfairnie.com
