Thread Name: memorable modern songs
Subject: RE: memorable modern songs
I recall a chorus song doing the rounds in the folk clubs of yesteryear, where the moral in the last verse was 'don't stick spears in babies' heads'

Mind you, a banjo playing friend of mine always complains when I play before him for playing sad songs, so the last time, I found a Scottish song, (always a good idea) where the first line of the first verse has him dying and the rest of the song reiterating it...

Lots of songs fit that by the way..

As Kenny Everett almost said, "all done in the best possible 1954 taste."
