Sea Song of the Week for the Lusitania

On this day in 1915, the British ocean liner Lusitania was torpedoed and sank in the Celtic Sea.

Flash forward to 2009. A musician named Andrew Bird imagines the phrase "I'm the one who sank the Lusitania" and starts to write music and more words to go with it. Just like that - we have our Sea Song of the Week for May 7 2010.

If you like Andrew Bird half as much as we do, visit his official website where you can see if this song is ever going to get on an album, among other things.
