Bob Crosby And The Bobcats - Way Back Home

Here's a lovely old song by Bing's brother Bob (no, really), recently used in the apocalyptastic game Fallout 3.

For those not in the know, Fallout 3 introduces you to a post-apocalyptic version of Washington D.C. including irradiated wastes and similarly irradiated mutants. Your character is born inside a so-called vault, a bunkerlike complex designed to save limited groups of people (or so they are told, at least). Anyway, your character is forced to leave his vault and it can be thoroughly depressing (in a good way, mind you) trudging through this destroyed world but you have the choice to switch on your radio and listen to a selection of golden oldies.

And I won't lie to you, when this song came around, it had quite the effect on me - especially when listening to the lyrics.

Right. That'll do.
