“Under the Milky Way” – The Church

Video

A song that’s always a breath of fresh air on any 80s mix. “Under the Milky Way” is a lovely and eerie acoustic-guitar (and bagpipes ?!?) driven ballad that got as high as number 24 on the Billboard singles chart in 1988. Considering the crap that was on the Top 40 that year, that’s quite an accomplishment. Produced by Warren Zevon’s producing right-hand man Waddy Wachtel.

“Under the Milky Way” – The Church

Video

A song I never get tired of when I hear it on 80s or New Wave stations. A classic in any idiom and only the tip of the iceberg as far as The Church is concerned. A terrific, underrated band.
