 Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ was released in February 1966 and quickly went to Number 1 in the US, the UK and many other countries around the world.

It was released when the Vietnam War was raging, but for me it triggers memories of cold winter mornings in Liverpool, when I was 5 years old, getting ready to go to infant school with my older brother and sister, as the song played on an old radio we had in the kitchen.
