haddocker PermaThread: Merchant Navy Songs (164* d) RE: PermaThread: Merchant Navy Songs 24 Jun 09


Thank you all. What is most exciting about all of this is that the invitation to "put your own tune to it" gives one some degree of poetic license. I expect Charley can certainly start us off with something, being the tunesmith that he is. If anyone can direct me to the "recommended" tunes which are mentioned in some of the posts, I would be most appreciative, as I am somewhat in the dark in relation to many of those mentioned.One particular value which these songs share is their rhyme and rythmn which lend themselves to composition. There is a tune that is probably just below the surface,and if one contemplates the spirit of the poem it will readily reveal itself.
