Your Playlist: Elbow

I recently stumbled across The Blanket of Night by Elbow. I'd not heard of this band or song before. But I can tell you, it is beautiful. Haunting. Here's how the song begins:

Paper cup of a boat
Heaving chest of the sea
Carry both of us
Carry her, carry me
From the place we were born
To the land of the free
Carry both of us
Carry her, carry me

Listen for yourself:

You could use this song to accompany discussion of irregular migration, European migration patterns, or asylum.
