Best Ever Brexit Song
« on: January 28, 2020, 12:57:07 am »
Not overly bothered which way people voted. Caves are caves irrespective of boundaries whether real or imagined.
So I'll start with Three Colours Blue.  There's a sort of caving link as Zbigniew Preisner, the Polish composer, held a brilliant concert down a salt mine (to follow).  Anyway here's a song from one of Krzysztof Kieślowski's best films.  (The other two films in the series, namely Three Colours Red and White are worth seeing too)
As ever thoughts and comments and contributions welcome.

A funeral march would be appropriate.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Hot Chocolate’s, You Sexy Thing, from The Full Monty will probably be appropriate when we crash out with no deal at the end of the ‘Transition Period’.

For those not familiar with The Full Monty, it’s the scene where they are all dancing while queuing up to sign on at the dole office after Maggie Thatcher closed down most of the mining industry and most of Sheffield’s steel works.

This is why I insist Otter Hole is the best Mendip cave

The list is endless - Chimes of Freedom, I Shall be Released, Autopsy, Goodbye Stranger.... I guess most of us are feeling happy this week so here's a simple song to enhance the mood:

Given the disaster which we've let ourselves sleepwalk into, perhaps this is appropriate:

I'm not. But as we're all doomed it seemed fitting.

Bizarrely - Iron Maiden got me interested in reading Coleridge - back in my teens, which has persisted today. (As on aside - my teenage enjoyment of Marillion also got me into reading Seamus Heaney)

Seems a very reasonable interpretation of an Anglo-German song:

I think Adam Faith nails it really, as he always did - and with a bass saxophone and a theremin, what's not to like?

It's not too late! ;)
