Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Made in Dagenham is a film about a strike at a Ford Motor plant in the London suburb of the title in 1968 by women workers seeking to achieve equal pay with men. The setting and plot allow for a soundtrack full of pop
ock songs of around that period, some of them touching on the theme and/or sung by women, most of those, naturally, Britons like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, and Lulu. Jamaican Desmond Dekker's renditions of his hit "Israelites" and of Jimmy Cliff's "You Can Get It If You Really Want" both are in the spirit of the movie's message, as are the songs of some Americans, notably the Temptations ("Get Ready"), James Brown ...

Made in Dagenham is a film about a strike at a Ford Motor plant in the London suburb of the title in 1968 by women workers seeking to achieve equal pay with men. The setting and plot allow for a soundtrack full of pop
ock songs of around that period, some of them touching on the theme and/or sung by women, most of those, naturally, Britons like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, and Lulu. Jamaican Desmond Dekker's renditions of his hit "Israelites" and of Jimmy Cliff's "You Can Get It If You Really Want" both are in the spirit of the movie's message, as are the songs of some Americans, notably the Temptations ("Get Ready"), James Brown ("It's a Man's, Man's, Man's World," with its tag line, "but it wouldn't mean nothin' without a woman or a girl"), and Mama Cass ("It's Getting Better"). Sometimes, the songs are just good oldies, like Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs' "Wooly Bully" or Traffic's "Paper Sun." The album cover proclaims this to be "music from and inspired by" the film, but the only song that could have been inspired by it is the title tune, newly written by David Arnold and Billy Bragg, and sung by Shaw, in the style of the other tracks on the album.
