Thread Name: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
Subject: RE: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
Well I make that about 437 songs already.

Have you noticed how many of these are songs that no one actually writes down and learns, but sort of inherits as a folk memory or acquire by some form of osmosis? I've never sat down to learn 'You are my sunshine', but still, I know it..... We even wrote our own version.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
You make me happy when skies are pink.
You'll never know dear, how much I love you,
Even though there are some days you stink.
