  1. Costello wrote it, about the Falklands was, and offered the more politically active Wyatt the chance to record it first.

  2. It was a co-write with Clive Langer, it was offered to Wyatt first, and Steve Nieve, Costello’s keyboard man, played on both versions. Langer joined Costello for a public performance on Jools Holland’s show in 1996, which is on the DVD “Live: A Case For Song.”
