"Strange Weather (Tom Waits cover)" as written by and Tom Waits....
Will you take me across the Channel
London Bridge is falling down
strange, a woman tries to save
more than a man will try to drown
and it's the rain that they predicted
it's the forecast ev'ry time
the rose has died because you picked it,
I believe that brandy's mine

And all over the world
strangers talk only about the weather
All over the world it's the same,
it's the same!

And the world is getting flatter
and the sky is falling all around
oh, and nothing is the matter
for I'll never cry in town
and a love like ours, my dear,
is best measured when it's down
and I never buy umbrellas
Ôcause there's always one around

And you know that it's beginning
and you know that it's the end
once again we are strangers
as the fog goes rolling in

and all over the world
strangers talk only about the weather
All over the world it's the same,
it's the same!
It's the same

    General CommentI love this song, especially sung by Emily, I think you could make parallels with modern society and the lyrics. The addictive, consumerist nature of our culture can is "the rose has died because you picked it, I believe that brandy's mine"

    We also seem to capitalise on fear and bigotry often within the news media "And the world is getting flatter and the sky is falling all around"
