INSP Vendor Playlist: Dave (Big Issue North, Manchester, UK)

Enrique Iglesias – ‘Hero’

Big Issue North vendor Dave, 60, who sells the magazine at Manchester Victoria train station, dedicates the stone-cold pop classic ‘Hero’ by Enrique Iglesias to his fellow vendors. “I have chosen this song because everybody who is on the streets out selling a magazine, who has come off drugs or alcohol or is dealing with another illness, is a hero.

“I got married six years ago and this was our first dance. Unfortunately, we are separated now, but this song still has a lot of meaning for me.”
