Subject: RE: Any July Songs
From: Levana Taylor
Date: 06 Nov 21 - 12:44 AM

In the early hours of July 4, 1925, a dilapidated Boston hotel collapsed, killing 44 of the partiers in the Pickwick Club, a speakeasy on the second floor. It is generally said that the building was brought down by the rhythmic vibrations from the crowd dancing the Charleston (to the sound of "12th Street Rag" played by McGlennon's jazz band). The following year, Arthur Fields (under the name Bob Thomas) recorded "The Pickwick Club Tragedy." To my ears, the usual mix of sentiment and moralizing goes beyond mawkish to bathetic in this composition. The Boston-based folksinger Tony Saletan included it on the 1970 album Folk Songs and Ballads; Tony does sound like he's having a hard time taking the song seriously as he sings!

THE ARGUMENT OF HIS BOOK
Robert Herrick- 1591-1674

I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers,
Of April, May, of June, and July flowers.
I sing of Maypoles, hock carts, wassails, wakes,
Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes...


================
July used to be pronounced like the name Julie. All you have to do now is make up a tune. Herrick's most famous poem is "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may."

July gets a mention in the refrain of Texas Gladden's version of "Old Kimball," and it's not on the list, so:

Old Kimball was a grey nag, old Nellie was a brown,
Old Kimball beat old Nellie on the very first go-round,

CHO:
And I see, and I see

THE DUNNE’S STORE STRIKE

Written by Sandra Kerr
Performed by:
- Sandra Kerr on Yellow, Red and Gold;
- Rebel Voices on Warning: Women at Work (American duo, my favourite version)
Christy Moore   
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TER_M3KNVCE

"On 18 July 1984, Mary Manning, a shop worker in the Henry Street, Dublin (Ireland) outlet of Dunnes Stores, refused to handle the sale of grapefruit from South Africa."

More details about the Strike here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunnes_Stores_strike

https://www.historyworkshop.org.uk/anti-apartheid-in-ireland-the-dunnes-stores-strike-1984-87/

It was in the month of sweet July in 1984
The scene was set in Dublin, in Dunne's Department Store
The supermarket's busy, the registers make a din
The groceries go rolling out, the cash comes rolling in!

Mary manning was sitting at the till not thinking any harm
When a customer comes up to her with a basket on her arm
The content of that basket, Mary's destiny will shape
For it bears the dreaded label: Produce of The Cape

"Oh I can't check out your oranges missus, won't you take them back,
For they come from South Africa where white oppresses black,
Our Union says don't handle them it's the least that we can do,
You'll know what opression is if you are Irish too"

For I'd have it on me conscience and I couldn't sleep at night
If I helped support a system that denied to blacks their rights"
The managers were called, the ones that wear the suits
And Mary was suspended 'cause she wouldn't touch the fruits

But her friends were all behind her and the union gave support
They struck, they picketed the boss was overwrought
He said "I'll not be dictated to on what is bought and sold!
These women are only workers they should do as they are told"

"That's typical", said the strikers, "of apartheid's cruel law,
It's not just in South Africa where rich oppresses poor.
Ben Dunne won't have a boycott, he'd sooner have the curse.
He couldn't care less how he fills his shelves as long as he lines his purse"

Now Clery's in O'Connell Street they won't sell racist shoes
Best Man returned their clothes and Roches sent back all their booze
"'Til all South African goods are taken off the shelves at Dunne's,
You'll find us down in Henry Street, sticking to our guns!"

"Apartheid", said the strikers, "is the law of slavery,
A cruel and immoral crime against humanity.
We've learnt about our system too and now we know the score
If we go back we'll never take the sh*t we took before"

The praises they came rolling in from all around the world
For such concern and sacrifice and courage brave and bold
When 14 months were over 10 women and a man
Had changed the minds and consciences and hearts of Ireland

true enough, I just renamed it in memory of the place and not the girl. Flower of Magherally , Ta mo chleanas a dheanamh, Diarmuid and Grainne . The galway shawl - The unattanable holy grail girls of Irish music folklore. The Rose of Tralee.

Contrast with the more realistic Lillibulero.

I am upset by an obvious miss. I used to sing the Banbridge Town song, and of course it is a July song, how did I miss that ? I think it is because I do not have any CDs of music that include that song so it has faded.

At the harvest fair she'll be surely there....

Sip on a pint of Guiness and forget the girl is my advice.

SLIEVENAMON

Frank McGrath wrote at Mudcat thread "Info on "Slieve na mBan"
"The line "To see our flag unrolled"... the Irish Tricolour, our national flag ... was unrolled for the first time on Slievenamon on the 16th July in 1848 by Thomas Francis Meagher at an enormous protest/rebellion meeting. The flag was inspired by the French Tricolour and signifies peace "White" between the "Green" nationalists and "Orange" the followers of William of Orange or Unionists."

Tom Finn sang Kickham's "Slievnamon" at the online Courthouse Session tonight, 16 July 2021. Tom gave much the same information in his introduction and said that Kickham himself was present at the rally where the future national flag of Ireland, the tricolour, was first raised.

(Not to be confused with another song Sliabh na mBan, which was composed in Ireland but has also been translated to English. Sliabh na mBan, transliterated as Slievenamon, means the Mountain of the Women, and it is an actual mountain in south County Tipperary.)

you are doing some very good research here.

thanks.

I do not know any August songs - for next month, I guess ppl were too busy harvesting, drinking and reproducing in that month for any songs to be made.

May is still the best song month by far.

The Jarvey Was A Leprechaun, recorded by the pretty un-cool Val Doonican, is a nonsense tour of Ireland, including the line "They heard him say that Galway Bay was frozen in July" [for clarity, it isn't actually: that's the point!]/mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=7080#42517. Jez Lowe wrote "The Wrong Bus" for the WW1 commemorations, mentioning Passchendale. Can find no musical links to it, outwith Mudcat or within [all search results are too early, leading to folks who've used the 3 words in the chat]. Robb Johnson did a ?trilogy of CDs about his own grandfather's/great-uncle's involvement there, and surely Coope, Boyes & Simpson have stuff in their repertoire on Passchendale.

On 14 July 2016, "Hank", a mixed breed pet dog, was seized in Belfast Northern Ireland under legislation which bans pit bull type dogs. Hank was neither the first nor the last dog to be seized under breed specific provisions of the Dangerous Dogs Act, but he was one of those who got the most publicity. Fortunately, Hank was spared the death penalty which many "of type" dogs receive. And fortunately, his case was adjudicated more quickly than many.

FAREWELL TO THE GOLD

We sluiced and we cradled for day after day,
Making hardly enough to get by;
Until a terrible flood swept poor Jimmy away
During six stormy days in July.

Another Somme song HEARTS OF GLORY by Craig Herbertson
https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=97952#1933589

performed by the author (youtube)

"July 1st, 1916, was Edinburgh’s worst day in the history of the British Army. During the first hour of the Battle of the Somme some sixty thousand men were killed or wounded – among them were twelve officers and over six hundred other ranks of “McCrae’s Battalion”, the 16th Royal Scots. It was Edinburgh´s blackest moment since Flodden. These lads had enlisted voluntarily under the leadership of the charismatic Lieutenant-Colonel Sir George McCrae, partly in response to suggestions in the press that young sportsmen were not ‘doing their bit’ for the war effort."
https://www.craigherbertson.com/recordings/hearts-of-glory/

Who cared for the Kaiser or imperial gains
Love of our country, duty or fame?
Between the whim of an airman and four feathers of shame
We fought for the pals of a wee fitba team

And when it was over just what had we done?
There were no flags of glory for McCrae and his own
There were no graves for heroes for our brothers and sons
Who sleep 'neath the flowers in the fields of the Somme

ZMAN MATN KHEYRUSEYNU, (The Time of the Giving of our Freedom) by Elyokum Tsunzer - aka Zunser (1836-1913), is a Yiddish song praising the freedom offered to Jewish immigrants to the U.S.

I haven't found the text except for the chorus in transliteration
Yiddish Philharmonic Chorus

Fayer, ale yidn, the Fourth of July
Dos iz undzer groyser yontef haynt
Do zayen yiden fun ale pares fray
Haynt bazigt men ale faynt

my fellow Jews, celebrate the Fourth of July
Today is our big holiday
Here Jews are free from all pharoahs
Today we conquer all our enemies

from the video "liner" notes by Samantha Zerin

Zunser viewed his immigration [from Lithuania] to America as "a second Exodus from Egypt," a Biblical analogy one can clearly see in the text to this song. In fact, while the version we sang is incredibly short (35 seconds!), Zunser's original poem, titled "Zman matn kheyruseynu" (The Time of the Giving of our Freedom) had five additional verses, which allowed him to make the contrast even starker:

"From stereotypes of the 'crooked Jew', from curses in the newspapers,
From the dark censures, from insulting government officials,
From dirty anti-semitism — free!"

(My fellow Jews, celebrate the Fourth of July...)

To this day, [in Europe], the Jews are hated and persecuted;
But our Declaration of Independence makes our country different!
Our Constitution is sealed with gold!

(My fellow Jews, celebrate the Fourth of July...)"

----
and yet Eliakum Tsunzer also wrote Kolumbus mit zayn golden land (Columbus and his golden land) a complaint about poverty in America.
