Subject: RE: Songs with Mermaids in
I fell in love in the 80s with a song by the musical collaborators known as "This Mortal Coil".

It was called "Song to The Siren" and it was sung brilliantly by Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins) :

Today I found that this song was actually written by Tim Buckley!

BOTH are great versions! Hope you enjoy them too!
