Correlli & Pop Song

Have a look here at the lyrics to Don Henley's "In the Garden of Allah" ahead of your upcoming seminar, and the music video here, and the echo of Sorrows of Satan will be clear.
I am the world's smallest Don Henley fan, but the lyrics are very clever and pleasingly allusive and witty both.
An e-text of the novel the song is more directly based upon (via a 1936 Marlene Dietrich film) is here.
