"Melbourne" is the second single by The Whitlams from their breakthrough album, Eternal Nightcap. It was released on 27 January 1998.[1] The song peaked at #70 on the Australian ARIA singles chart. It was also included on The Whitlams' best-of album, Truth, Beauty and a Picture of You. A music video edit of this song is shorter and features more strings. This mix was included on the compilation album. Melbourne was also performed live with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in September 2007. Also, on the single, an earlier version of the song "400 Miles from Darwin" was included, which was later re-recorded for their 1999 album, Love This City. The demo was also included on the 2002 limited edition album, Rarities: 1992–2003.
