In January, we noted that two bands from London had released songs with the same name – “Pompeii.” Tonight, we will see Bastille perform their “Pompeii” and we are hoping to have a similar opportunity to see Bear’s Den.
A new oddity is the release of three songs with the title “House on Fire,” with all three releases occurring since May. Interestingly (well we find it interesting anyway), we can tie two of the three songs to blog entries of the last week. First, the song from the Liverpool band Outfit was presented in the July 18 discussion of rock guitar (CLICK HERE). Second, the song by Black Taxi includes the trumpet, so it could fit into yesterday’s post about trumpet-containing songs (CLICK HERE).

A bonus track – one that almost fits the naming qualification.
