These songs were back to back on a mix tape I made in the 90s, and they're now inextricably linked in my head as a double-header:
Plastic Bertrand - Ca Plane Por Moi
The Jim Carroll Band - People Who Died
Poor Tony. He couldn't fly.
And for what it's worth, the Rancid album . . . And Out Come the Wolves is named after a line in the song "Junkie Man" that album penned by and recited by Jim Carroll.
