Graham Nowland, author of 'Chomsky and the Kultigator'

What song would the narrator/protagonist of your story sing at a karaoke bar and why?

Paul, a publisher’s editor who attends the Frankfurt Book Fair and keeps being mistaken for Chomsky, would karaoke over ‘Louie Louie’ in the version by Iggy Pop. He would sing instead that ‘The nuclear dream has fallen apart’ before plunging on to bellow Iggy’s original lines about capitalism breaking our hearts and money being the reason to be. These are sufficient reasons for Paul wanting to sing ‘Louie Louie’, he advises me.
