Tunnels, Arcade Fire Version

Always one of my favorite songs, even before The Tunnels book, from early Arcade Fire.  Building a tunnel “from my window to yours.”  This, speaking broadly, basically occurred in the tunnels under the Berlin Wall in 1962 that I cover in my book.  The goal for many of the West German students who dug them was to get out lovers and wives, not to mention friends and family members.
