Shape Up And Dance With Billy Bragg

Billy Bragg encouraged the good folk of London to play and sing along with him (one of the few times where the crowd's singing is more tuneful than the artist's...) at his Even Bigger Busk on the South Bank on Saturday.

I stumbled across it serendipitously, and was very happy I did. He played:
Keep on Running
Mr Tambourine Man
Walk On The Wild Side
A New England
Stand By Me
Wonderful World
One Love
Medley (Louie Louie, Wild Thing, Guantanamera, Get Off Of My Cloud)

For One Love, Billy invented a simple dance routine for the "One Love/One Heart/Let's get together/And feel all right" refrain, as you can see in the photo above. Remarkably, some people got it wrong.
