Pistachio Songs You Can't Sing for Crying (158* d) RE: Songs You Can't Sing for Crying 28 Jan 10

'For Those in Peril on the Sea', a favourite of my Dads - that we sang at his funeral,
'The Farewell Shanty', that I first heard sung by The Shellbacks,
'Luckiest Sailor' by Linda Kelly (about the loss of the Kingston Peridot,Hull 1968)
Eric Bogle - And the band played Waltzing matilda, Leaving Nancy and Rosies eyes,
Rosemarys sister - and many other War related songs
Sky Sailor by Geoff Lawes.
I honestly wouldn't try to sing Eric's songs or Rosemarys sister and I have cried while singing all the others. I am human!
I can even be reduced to tears by a crowd of singers in full flow, it's so theraputic to get immersed in songs and most of those named in earlier posts will stir emotions that should be permitted to rise.
