GUEST,Crystal Songs we were made to sing in school... (101* d) RE: Songs we were made to sing in school... 01 Jun 07


We had hymn books a blue one and a green one, everyone in the class got one or the other unless you were handing them out when you could take one of each and not share! Most of the songs were (to me) highly objectional ones of the "God is great" variety, but one song was very popular, it was called Autumn Days and included the shouted line "And a win for my home team!". When we got a singing assembly on a Friday (where we just sang hymns rather than getting talked at) it was always requested.
Another rather nice song was a round called Shalom. No-one else really liked that one though.
I'm sure the hymn books were something to do with BBC schools as there was sometimes a radio program to accompany them.
Any other children of the 80's and early 90's remember them?
