They're usually some of the first songs that show up. :)

Are you sure you typed that correctly? :P


Maybe he's very popular in Switzerland :lol:


Nope. It just popped into my mind.

But that guy's very popular round here:

He mixed hip hop with folk music and it came out pretty good.

Here's another one:

That one's really funny. It's about 10 guys doing a drinking-competition. (what explains some of the nasty sounds :lol: ):

I love that song. Our local radio presenter doesn't like playing it though, because it doesn't have enough of a beat. :cry:

Has anyone mentioned Baker Street yet?

I think you will find that the track is called The Great Gig In The Sky.

Baker Street - brilliant and I've loved saxophone ever since :D

You know, I had to go all the way to America to hear a song about South Wales. The Bells of Rhymney was a poem written by a Welshman and made into a song by American folk singer Pete Seeger.

Here's Pete singing it. :D

There have been loads of covers of it by such people as The Byrds, John Denver and The Alarm. There are some interesting pronounciations of 'Rhymney' though. :lol:

Heard that one before. I think it was on one of those late-night radio specials.

It's quite wistful...

We took the Porsche down to Tiger Bay
Drank the pubs dry where bands used to play in their heyday
I ran amok in the luxury blocks
Smashing windows against the clock for some therapy
There I glimpsed where we used to come
By the cranes and the luxury boats, a pure fantasy
From the tower I can see the past
Where we met and where we departed, the underworld

Caught the train to the valley again
cast a sprinkle from pains in the
I wandered down to (pirate town)
In the island I nearly drowned, you can count on me
