gecko Union songs with a great chorus? (38) Union songs with a great chorus? 28 Dec 06

As next year's May Day March - Labour Day - promises to be the biggest ever on account of the despicable IR legislation and also the looming Federal election, I thought we might attempt to form a scratch union choir to perform on the day - 7 May 2007. In the happy event that the group enjoy themselves, perhaps a more permanent choir will emerge - I hope. The exciting thing is that our good friend and unionist, Danny Spooner, has indicated he will be more than happy to come to Cairns to conduct singing workshops to get us off the ground, as it were!.
I am hoping to involve ordinary workers and union members, and for the most part will be spending time encouraging the blokes to join in. If I've heard "Me! You wouldn't want me 'cos I can't sing a note" once, I've heard it ten times already - but only from the Brothers.
Most of the singers won't have much experience or confidence in their ability to sing, so the songs we select must be simple but stirring - which is where you 'catters come in. I'm looking for around half a dozen fairly upbeat union songs with great choruses to whet the appetite of reluctant singers!

I wish you a Happy New Year and may we all work towards a peaceful world in 2007 - which means Johnny must go for starters!
