Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Dam collapse tragedy songs
It is interesting how some disasters start songwriters' phantasies and others don't. There are also not very many earthquake songs and I know no avalanche song. It seems songwriters rather write about songs with a slow and cruel death with a long fight like drowning or being buried in a mine. Quick suffocating is not what turns them on. The victims must have the time for a last verse.
