It’s the general election in Great Britain today, and while the result looks likely to be a close call, with the Conservative Party expected to come out on top, there is some less depressing news—the Green Party is expected to gain its first parliamentary seat in Brighton, which would be a significant historic moment.
Radiohead singer Thom Yorke is a vocal supporter of the Green Party, and has taken to Dead Air Space today to post his own election day playlist. Perhaps mindful of David Cameron’s likely rise to Prime Minister, the No. 1 slot on Yorke’s list goes to “The Lunatics (Have Taken Over The Asylum)” by Fun Boy Three.
