Reminds me of another Tupelo by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, but this one describing the birth of Elvis Presley during a heavy storm.

Considered the best Australian song of all time in many polls, Khe Sanh is the name of a town that was a key battle site during the Vietnam War.

Berlin Chair by You Am I is a ripping song. As a bit of trivia, this song and Nirvana's Sliver were used to form the name of one of Australia's most successful bands from the 1990s - Silverchair.

I just posted this in the Song of the Week forum and realised that it fits here too - Ultravox with a live version of Vienna.

Hello Jane, Dean and Eleanor, welcome to our music forum.
Thanks for posting that song.....Dave and I got married in Barbados, barefoot on the beach. I'd never heard that song. Very cool.

Hi, another couple that I rediscovered on my ipod this morning while walking - Michelle Shocked: Anchorage and Memories of East Texas

Couldn't find a video of the latter, but discovered she's been doing a bit of ranting of late, so not quite sure what's going on there. But back in the 90s, I was loving these tunes. Reply to this

Time for some western classical music - Warsaw Concerto composed by Richard Addinsell. Soloist is Chirs Hill, who calls himself a weekend pianist - but he doesn't sound like one.
