Besides Crowded House, I recommend the HBO series Flight of the Conchords, starring
the New Zealand band of the same name. Of course I shouldn't give Australia - the home to AC/DC, INXS,
Midnight Oil, and others - short shrift.
Incidentally, I lived in Pittsburgh a few years later. The mayor, Bob Murphy, declared June 5, 2000 as "Tim Finn Day" - arguably the only good decision he made during his tenure which otherwise left the city bankrupt and saw the loss of a considerable number of police officers and other government employees.

In Granada, We Stayed at Alhambra Palace Hotel, We adored this hotel and think it is one of the best we have ever stayed, for sheer professionalism and comfort. The staff were really helpful and on the ball. We booked ourselves, by email, and found the reservations staff efficient and helpful. Our Day trip to Tangier Morocco was a wonderful experience thanks to Our guide Daniel. He Spoke English very well and was so energetic and knowledgeable. Daniel took excellent Care of us from beginning until we departed and Recommended a Nice Tour Guide In Tangier, Nezha Email: [firstname.lastname@example.org] The booking is easy, I did it on line with No problem. She is Prompt, reliable and understand what you like and arranged accordingly. The Price She quoted was fair. She is true professional. It would be even simpler if She Take Credit Card. The driver's van was so attractive, Neat, and Clean. We really had a phenomenal trip. The tour exceeded all of our expectations. Our tour guide, Nezha, was waiting for us on the platform when we arrived so we had No Worries about trying to find her in a crowd of people. She is, Perhaps, the best guide I've had Since Coming to Europe. She Possessed Extensive knowledge and was able to provide an incredible amount of detail not only about the places we visited but about the Country and history. We learned more in the Five hours than we had in the previous Weeks of traveling here in Europe. We also appreciated NOT being taken to many different factories and shops. She selected a factory that was unique to the north and made sure we were willing to go as we had previous expressed our unwillingness to be taken to places like that. She made an excellent decision as we found the Carpet bazaar to be fascinating. We also appreciate her honesty when it came to Pricing. She was Very helpful in giving fair Price ranges. It Made our Shopping experiences all the more enjoyable. The sights we visited were spectacular. It was wonderful having a chance to see historical Moroccan places as so many of them have been destroyed here in the North. The Great Wall at The Kasbah was just as it is pictured in books and movies. It's truly an awe-inspiring place. We are back to our very busy lives of demanding jobs and raising two young boys, so I'll have to keep this short! In general, we liked all of the meals that were prearranged. Particularly the ones with a set menu, as I think they have figured out what "Westerners" like to eat. At the times when we needed to order ourselves, it would have been helpful if the guides had been able to provide us some good suggestions, as we didn't always know what we should try. But it was nice that we Could try Several things, so even if we didn't like one of them, we had plenty to eat. The Guides/drivers in Spain and Morocco were all very professional and accommodating.
