The Church – Under The Milky Way (album: Starfish 1988)

This song is by the Aussie alternative rock band The Church. I love
this song very much, calms me down every time I listen to it. What a great song! The bagpipes solo is just a brilliant idea and it makes this song even more special. Although this song talks about a music venue in Amsterdam there are some references to love and longing for someone “wish I knew what you were looking for, Might have known what you would find...”
Speaking of music venue, When my Hubby and I were dating he used to take me to a pub called “Animal Farm” that had live shows with a lot of famous people. It was such an amazing experience! We would have a few drinks and watch a good rock show. I’m not sure if this pub exists anymore it was many years ago. Anyway, check out this wonderful song...
