The Lebanon from Human League is a song with politically-charged lyrics which is surprising for a synthpop band.
In 2007, the lines “Before he leaves the camp he stops, He scans the world outside, And where there used to be some shops, Is where the snipers sometimes hide” were voted as the ninth-worst lyrics of all time, in an NME reader poll. Quite funny.

You can read more information about the track on its wiki page.

The choice of the cover was inspired by Rob Haskins, known to be a John Cage specialist among many other things.

Big thanks to him.
