Thread Name: Extreme 'goodnight songs'
Subject: RE: Extreme 'goodnight songs'
"Running Bear" isn't in the first person. Blizzard fits though. I'm seeking songs in the present tense as the speaker dies.
"Oxford Girl" is one of the "Died for Love" group. I don't know the version by the Oyster Band. If it ends like "Butcher's Boy", and is in the first person, and present tense, it will fit. There are many songs told in the past tense presumably by ghosts.
