• This was all I found on Wikpedia: Under the Milky Way is a 1988 song by The Church. Written by the band's vocalist and bassist, Steve Kilbey and his partner Karin Jansson, it was originally released on The Church's "Starfish" album by the Arista label. It won the Australian ARIA award for best song in 1989. The song, released in 1988, has been described as "hauntingly beautiful" [1] and was The Church's biggest hit to date, staying in the US top 40 for several weeks. The song was later included in the 2001 movie Donnie Darko. In 2006 the song experienced a revival of sorts when it was performed at the opening ceremony of the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Lead singer Steve Kilbey said after the performance that it was as if the song was made for the occasion, though in his blog he was critical of the Commonwealth Games as an event. It is interesting to note that The Church's two biggest hits were both written by Kilbey and his partner at that time, the other being 1981's "The Unguarded Moment", which was co-written by Michelle Parker. These are the only two Church songs to have been written that way and both were hits.
