there's a bunch online here - http://www.harmonieii.co.uk/caving/cavingsongs.htmlI reckon there will be a few songs sung (including new ones!) at the BEC dinner this year...
On a related note, I was at a funeral this morning. The deceased was in his 80s. We remarked that in the not too distant future the ipod generation will be a positive embarrassment on such occasions as they simply will not know hymn tunes, just as so many cavers no longer know the tunes to these songs.
Many (many) years ago, one of our members produced a song book similar to the SWCC one. He brought them to the pub to sell, one Saturday night. Four of us - of whom three were strangely enough SWCC members as well as UBSS - sang, from memory, as many songs as we could that he had omitted from the book. We went on for quite some time, I recall.

Doh ... I could possibly grab a clip from a DVD copy I have.
Some years back, an SWCC member put together a book of caving and folk songs heard at Penwyllt. It's available from SWCC for £2. The idea was to keep some of these songs alive and known to the younger generation. Group sing songs still happen from time to time up there.
Caving songs on the NSS sitePostby KeyserSoze » Mar 9, 2008 3:23 pmI found a page with links to caving songs on the NSS website, but I am not able to play the songs on my computer. When I try to play a song it says that the file extension might be wrong or that I don't have the right codecs to play the file. Another problem could be that I was having some trouble downloading them at first, so maybe it's a file error due to the download process.Here is a link to the page.http://www.caves.org/committee/salons/ballads/CB_by_song.shtmlIs anybody else having trouble playing the songs? Got any ideas how to fix it?Sorry if this question is out of place; I just figured that this problem would be best solved with input from a group of people.
