One of Ultravox's best hits. It stayed at #2 in British charts for 4 consecutive weeks, though it never reached number 1 there. But it was one of the 5 top selling records in 1981.

The song takes inspiration from the 1948 film The Third Man, which is based around the Austrian  capital Vienna. And the video, curiously enough, was filmed in central London.

We walked in the cold air
Freezing breath on the window pane
Lying waiting

A man in the dark in the picture frame
So mystic and soulful.
A voice reaching out and a piercing cry

It stays with you until
The feeling is gone
Only you and I
It means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh Vienna

The music is weaving
Haunting notes pizzicato strings
The rhythm is calling
Alone in the night as the daylight brings a cool empty silence
The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky
It fades to the distance.

The image is gone
only you and I
It means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh Vienna







This means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh Vienna.
