Rev Disaster songs (42) Disaster songs 19 Feb 01

Some of my favorite folk songs are songs about disasters. They all have such a wonderful combination of pathos and melancholy along with a strong historical component. They really seem to give me a look into the feelings and concerns of the communities that were affected by the disaster. Digitrad has lots of disaster songs in the database, but what's your favorite? Has anyone out there ever written a song to commemorate their own local disaster (natural or human-made)? How do you feel about singing songs about carnage and death?
