13 - Fine and Mellow - Billie Holiday - Heroin, alcohol, jail time, sexual abuse, used and taken advantage of by the men in her life, and probably her share of racism during that period as with many other of the greats of that era. You can see she is a bit high on heroin in this great performance from her late days in 1957. A few years later she was gone in 1959 sadly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SThGnrorGW8

14 - Spastic Autisticus - Ian Dury - Polio at age 7 after which he was sent to a ' special school ' where he was bullied,and sexually abused.
Wrote the song in respose to ' national disabled day ' introduced in 1981 calling it patronizing
and insensitive created by naive and arrogant do- gooders.
The song was banned by the BBC who had no idea that Dury was disabled claiming it was offensive.
