GUEST,Ken Brock Lyr Req: Dam collapse tragedy songs (21) RE: Lyr Req: Dam collapse tragedy songs 13 Jan 18

The Johnstown Flood is mentioned in "You Mustn't Be Discouraged", by Styne, Comden and Green from the 1964 musical Fade Out - Fade In, performed by Carol Burnett and Tiger Haynes honoring Shirley Temple and Bojangles Robinson (I think). Also, Leonard Cohen has a song titled "Avalanche" on Songs of Love and Hate that I think is more figurative than literal. Richard Rodgers' grandson Adam Guettel wrote a musical titled Floyd Collins about that cave collapse.
