Anyone would think it was St Paddy's day and thus loads of people were singing Irish Songs. Mine appears to be a bit more ecletic:

Reggaeforce (Don't ask. It's safer that way)
Code Monkey (Don't ask. It's safer that way)
Always (Don't ask. It's safer that way)
Living in the Sunlight (Don't ask. It's safer that way)
General Taylor
Hanging Johnny
Donkey Riding
King Gwin
Whiskey Is The Life Of Man
Blanche Comme le Neige

Those are guesses, haven't done much group singing for a while.

Hey John P see you are into Polska's. Well done.

Went through the list to see what I was doing three years ago

2006 it's :

"Gretna Green" Tony Philip's. Written for a Blacksmith's theme evening.
"What's The Use Of Wings". Brian Bedford. Wonderful use of words.
"Banks Of The Dee". Trad, via Norma Waterson.
"Claudy Banks". Trad, via Alex Campbell.
"Colin And Pheobe". Trad, via Ed Rennie.
"Carrion Crow". Trad, from Alfred William's "Folksongs Of The Upper Thames"
"Barefoot Dangler. Freebee, from ElGreko's website. Thanks George.
"Dockyard Gate". Trad, via Pete Bellamy.
"Channels". Graham Perry, via Pete Harris. I was a "Lecky" on Union Castle Line for two years so I know the feeling in this one.
"Get Up And Go". Pete Seeger. Pete wrote this when he was 39! He thought he was getting old. Now nearly twice that! Nice one Pete.

2009
Still singing them, but

Last night's gig was


Banbury Bill       Played on Melodeon
The Keeper.   Now that's a nice golden oldie That I'm trying to learn to sing with my new, "Box of Gold" melodeon

July Wakes.   Which I got years ago off a, dare I say it, Mike Harding LP.

Colin & Pheobe

Lancashire Jazz Band.    Which I got from The Oldham Tinkers LP.

Putting on the Style.   Lonnie Donegan favorite.
Barrington Hornpipe    Played on Concertina
Carrion Crow            Alfred William's version
The Gray Mare          Classic Bellamy

Harpa.    The Norwegian version of, The Cruel Sister. Which I last sung at the death count session at Sidmouth last year.

Rambling Sailor.    Which I now do with a break for to hear the original version that I now have on a cd via a pod cast I got from the British library. The original is from 1907 recordings on wax cylinder from the Ralph Vaughan Williams collection

Here We Come A-wassailing.    Still wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

Plus a couple of Swedish tunes to finish

Engelska frän Ödskolt and SlengPolsk frän Kuma

Bouquet of Roses

Rolling Home (Tams)
Old Brown's Daughter
Row On
Constant Lovers
Waltz Across Texas
Wishful Thinking
Paper Moon
Crazy
Road to Mandalay (Peter Bellamy tune)

More than 10. All these songs have the features that either they can be sung walking to the subway, can be sung at a bluegrass/country session, have good choruses people can join in with easily--or a combination of the above.

Except Road to Mandalay, which I just think captures the flavor of its time perfectly. And besides the Bellamy tune is great for climbing hills.

I play mostly my own songs. But I've built up quite a few covers and traditionals over the past year.

On the 5-string open-back banjo:

Paint It Black – the Rolling Stones
Willie of the Winsbury (trad)
Ballad of the Bollweevil (using Mance Lipscombe's melody, which sounds a bit like Frankie & Johnny and unlike any other 'Bollweevil' I've ever heard)
Dear Prudence (the Beatles)
(the above all lend themselves well to C tuning)
Darling Corey
In The Pines (sort of a hybrid version between Leadbelly's 'Black Girl' and Bill Monroe's version)

On resonator mandolin:

St James Infirmary
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Hand Me Down my Walking Cane (with the lyrics changed to excise all the religious stuff and make it exclusively about getting wasted on various different alcoholic beverages)
(all directly inspired by the excellent Dix Bruce "Teach Yourself" book, which I can thoroughly recommend)
Germ Free Adolescents by X-Ray Spex

On acoustic guitar:

Brisk Young Widow (version based on the arrangement in a book of Cecil Sharp transcribed for guitar I found in Brixton library)
Parachute Woman by the Rolling Stones
I Need Somebody by the Stooges
Dum Dum Boys by the Stooges
No-one Knows by Queens of the Stone Age

On charango:

Ten? Some of us dream of doing ten...

I accidentally deleted my handy spreadsheet the other day, but I think my last ten would probably be

Hughie the Graeme
the Scarecrow (Lal Waterson)
Little Musgrave
Horns
This is the ballad of Sir Patrick Spens (P. R.)
Lord Allenwater
Lowlands
Poor old horse
The valiant sailor
The bonny bunch of roses

I think my favourite out of all of those is Horns (Horns! Large horns!) It's about sex and death, it's completely barking mad, it's got a chorus that sounds great in three-part harmony and it's over before anyone knows what's hit them. What, as they say, is not to like?

Saturday afternoon, Mizchuck and I did a duo at an art studio reception up at Killington. We had to go for 2 1/2 hours, and I had a cold and wasn't functioning well, so she did a lot of lead singing and fiddle tunes. We didn't do some of our standards, since I hate to sing them when no one's really listening to the lyrics, but we had fun dredging up some old stuff that had been neglected. I was so foggy, I can't remember for sure all the leads I did. As near as I recall, I did do these:

Billy Gray (Norman Blake)
Sky Above, the Mud Below, The (Tom Russell)
William Faulkner in Hollywood (Tom Russell)
Fifty Years Ago (Ian Tyson)
Mineral Wells (Tom Russell)
How the Queen of the Gypsies Met Trouble-and-Pain (Lyrics, Nancy Willard; melody my own)
You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive (Darrell Scott)
Yankee Lady (Jesse Winchester)

Finished with medley of Mouth of the Musselshell (Ian Tyson/Tom Russell) and Say Goodbye to Montana (Alex Harvey, Tim Rouillier).

What an interesting thread..

I never learn more than one or two songs each week. So I'm quite slow at setting them down. And this list will take me well back before Xmas, as I had a good month of snotty oozing which put me off singing altogether.

Death and the Lady
John Barleycorn
Gay Green Gown (Graham and Eileen Pratt)
Go Into a Hare (Allansford Pursuit)
The Unquiet Grave
Bushes and Briars
A Begging I Will Go
The Great Silkie
The Twa Corbies
Ar Eirinn Ni Neosfainne Ce Hi

I wonder what my equivalent list will be come the Summer, when hopefully I'll have a greater knowledge base and understanding of traditional folk songs.

Love Song of a Simple Man - Eric Bogle
Little Musgrave - trad
January Man - 5 x claims to have written it to my knowledge!
Cats in the cradle - Harry Chapin
Reason to believe - Tim Hardin
Bracken lift - Ian Mather
Boothferry Bridge - Harvey Andrews

Games people play - Joe South
New years eve - Si Khan
