Song of the day: Spandau Ballet- Through The Barricades

Spandau_Ballet-Through_The_Barricades-Frontal

In 1986, Spandau Ballet released Through The Barricades. The title track and single of the album became a hit, charting in the UK at number 6. The song describes an almost impossible love story between a Catholic and a Protestant in Ireland, where it was written. The ending however is not clear, since it could refer to suicide or just the end of the relation (in the lines “Hearts go to their graves”). Enjoy
