The Eagles - One of these nights
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

Icehouse 'Big Wheel' (1993)

Another excellent album from Iva Davies. Australian best-kept-secret with fine songs, interesting arrangements and crystalline recording.

For me, '154' was their best album.
