Subject: RE: Req: Miner's Lifeguard Parody (Shanty Singers)
Possinly heresy, I know, but Miner's Lifeguard goes really well to a reggae beat, or to a speeded-up R&B rhythm.
I have a sneaking regard for Anne's views - it's a powerful song, but there's always something a tad strange about seeing a bunch of comfortably middle-class teachers, local authority white-collar workers and IT professionals holding their fists aloft and belting out the chorus. Where were they doing in '84, I wonder? But perhaps I'm just being a curmudgeonly cynic (as ever!).
