Subject: RE: Songs of hope and optimism
If I'm at a sing around / session and all is not right with the world I have a tendancy to sing - A man's a man for a' that.

If I'm at a sing arround/session and all is not right with me, I have such a vast number of miserable songs in my repetoire that I ignore them and go for the comic - such as the jelly piece song or the hippo song. I did do them both in one evening once when I really didn't want to sing anything sad.

Wasn't it Lisa on the Simpsons that said - the blues are not to make you feel better they are to make other people feel worse.
