I was struck by the following music-player serendipity:
- Bruce Cockburn, “If I Had a Rocket Launcher”
- Cry Cry Cry, “Northern Cross”
- Poi Dog Pondering, “Catacombs”
- Aztec Camera, “Sun”
- Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Under the Bridge”
- Dream Academy, “Life in a Northern Town”
A real late-80s, early-90s vibe going on here. I continue to wonder how many Americans actually comprehend the BrE connotations of “Northern”, particularly with respect to socioeconomic factors like unemployment.
