Thread Name: songs about building boats/ships?
Subject: RE: songs about building boats/ships?
Robert Wyatt's beautiful song" shipbuilding was covered by Elvis Costello but the original is even more powerful. Somebody said that people get filled in for saying that people get killed in the results of this shipbuilding. Saw it on the Old Grey whistle Test and it stuck with me. "Diving for dear life when we could be diving for pearls"
