In honor of our Celtic colonizer cousins on their national day, a few new wave-y tributes to their homeland. New wave had a penchant for combining the modern and futuristic with the traditional and ancient. This comes out most clearly in songs that reflect on a people's character and history, like the Icehouse song below.
"Down Under" by Men at Work (1981)
"Great Southern Land" by Icehouse (1982)
"Already Yesterday" by The Church (1985)
