** ''Where We Will Be Going'' consists almost entirely of oblique references (compare DonMcLean's ''American Pie'', which de Burgh covers as one of his influences on ''Footsteps''). The readily identifiable ones include the Apollo moon landing, the assassinations of JohnFKennedy and JohnLennon, and ''2001ASpaceOdyssey''.

* WorldWarI: The setting of ''This Song for You''.
* WorldWarII: The subject of ''Borderline'' and ''Say Goodbye To It All''--most of the war happens between the two songs; in some performances this is indicated by an interlude in which the sounds of marching and explosions are heard.

* OneHitWonder: "The Lady in Red" was his only big hit in the U.S., although "Don't Pay The Ferryman" cracked the top 40 a few years before his biggest hit charted.

Chris de Burgh is an Anglo-Irish singer-songwriter, born in Argentina. He has been active since 1974, mainly in the genres of soft pop, soft rock and easy listening. SmallReferencePools know him by his 1986 hit ''LadyInRed'' and by extension other SillyLoveSongs, but his output is actually quite a bit more varied than that. He often uses religious themes in his songs, sometimes explicitly and sometimes more of the EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory variety. He is also known due to his daughter Rosanna ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the subject of the song]] ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Rosanna]]'') winning Miss World in 2003 (as Miss Ireland) and for being the ArchEnemy of musical comedian BillBailey.

* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: Some of his songs have debatable religious themes. Also, in a non-religious example, there is disagreement about who the subject of ''LadyInRed'' is.



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: He's incredibly popular in Iran and has collaborated with Iran's "Aryan Band" (NB this term does not have UnfortunateImplications in Iran). Some of his more recent work has a Middle Eastern flavour to it, presumably as a result.

* NotChristianRock: Many of his songs draw on Christian themes and imagery, but only a few can be considered actual worship. Part of ''The Words "I Love You"'' stands out for this reason. Also, some songs were written as secular love songs but were also rewritten with different pronouncs to produce worship songs, such as "Where Peaceful Waters Flow".
