"Werewolves of London" - Warren Zevon, 1978

As usual, we were listening to BBC Radio 2 this morning at the office. Unusually, though, I left it on after 12:00, when Ken Bruce's excellent show morphs into Jeremy Vine's sometimes-annoying mix of current events and music. But today is budget day here in the UK, and I thought it might be interesting to see what the government would announce in London...through Chancellor Alistair Darling.

Vine cut to live coverage of Parliament for awhile and then realized that the Chancellor's presentation hadn't started yet. So he returned to playing music.

He played Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London".

I couldn't help but laugh at the fabulous juxtaposition!

Funny picture! But what's Tower Bridge doing in the middle of Parliament Square?

In yet another weird coincidence seeing as we were only talking about it the other day, this song came up on shuffle on my iPod yesterday. Bear in mind I have well over 11,000 songs on there.
