#10 Life During Wartime - Talking Heads
#19 London's Burning - The Clash (excellent choice Quirk)

I always heard the lyrics of #19 as "Black and white are turning on to face the new religion" but Joe Strummer's vocal delivery was always notoriously difficult to understand, so your version may well be right!
