Emmie singalong songs (29) RE: singalong songs 16 Jun 99


Thanks a lot everyone for the advice. I get the impression that sea shanties are a good choice!! I haven't figured out yet how to get sound on the data base but I'll have a go. I like the idea of making up my own tune. I suppose if someone knows the tune and wonders why I am singing a different one I could tell them that it is an old variation handed down to me by my granny. I decided this morning that I would sing "my bonny light hrseman" because I know it already and the chorus is quite easy but I will deffinately check out a cd of sea shanties. Fab idea. I usually sing songs that are pinched off the albums of people I like a lot: All of Waterson Carthy, Sandy Denny, Kate Rusby and Katherine Roberts, June Tabor, Planxty, Bothy band, Chieftans, Solas, Dick Gaughan, the guy who did the album penguin eggs and the list goes on. I am happy to listen to and learn more stuff though as this is quite British stuff. I want to listen some more to my friends smithsonian American Folkways to learn some stuff because it is so wonderful Thanks again everyone You're brilliant!! Emmie
