If you have young children, or recommend this to the grandchildren! 

Nick Cope is an Oxford musician who used to be in an indie band but now does brilliant children’s songs. Have seen him perform several times and the kids love him! Some topical songs about hand washing and sneezing!

I’m not familiar with that one. I think my mother had some of his records, though.

If you ever watch old movies, Tex Ritter sang the theme song to “High Noon” starring Gary Cooper. A great western movie.

Yup. Watched High Noon many times in our working class home when I was growing up. Here goes.   In for a penny in for a pound. Try This Love Me Now (while I am living)

Another nice one here. Much older: 2014.

As it's the European Anthem it's not as popular as it once was, when it simply was the Ode to Joy. 

Last Sunday in Amsterdam students played the St Matthew Passion on their balconies.  Very short video here.

 

 

Singing songs while washing hands inspired one of my favorite newspaper columnists to suggest The End by the Doors to her children as it's 11:48 min. That'll teach them!

Here the 3:48 min. version. That'll do.

 

My favorite German singer songwriter Reinhard Mey yesterday posted this short video of a short living room concert.

He once made fun of the Ode to Joy at the end of this song here.

Ok one more for our German listeners out there 😁.

The Doors did this with the same title: Ship of Fools.

 

I'm with MarkK: The end of the world by REM;

With Dyn Llun: that Tom Lehrer song. Well all of them.

My favorite version of that Dylan song: this one sung by Pete Seeger. Once his mentor; once his adversary; still his admirer at 92 (in this video - he died when he was 94).

 

After all this it's clear that Youtube knows a thing about me and my future. It suggests Comment Te Dire Adieu  !

Which is a great song, but let's hope it's a bit too soon for that.

. People begged her (she was very shy) to sing “Mule Skinner Blues” and “Milk Cow Blues”. 

 

Both great songs. I love Dolly Parton's version of Mule Skinner Blues, though my favorite is by the Cramps.

In my travels these past two years, I found that the best buskers are in Galway City. And they are not all playing Celtic music either.

Didn't know you could play the banjo, Edo...

Don’t know if this one has been mentioned.

“All By Myself” by Eric Carmen

I always loved this song, one of my all-time favorites.

Box of Rain by the Grateful Dead. 

 

 

 If I had to take one album with me into total solitude it would be American Beauty by the Grateful Dead.  I already suggested 3 songs from it way back but Ripple is another really beautiful song. I also love Sugar Magnolia and dedicate it to my wife. Robert Hunter wrote some amazingly profound and incredibly clever stuff.

Surprised this hasn't made the top ten!!!!!

 

Gerry & The Pacemakers - You'll Never Walk Alone

 

 

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
