Thread Name: Mudcat Up Singing - a perfect songbook
Subject: Mudcat Up Singing - a perfect group songbook
OK, so there's another thread going (click here), bashing Rise Up Singing again. As usual, everybody seems to put the blame on me for all the shortcomings of the book, just because I speak up for its good points.
We all know that the Digital Tradition is the best songbook ever created, but it's a little impractical to use during a song circle. Can you imagine 25 people singing from laptops? So, OK, since Rise Up Singing is so awful, what songs would you suggest for the perfect GROUP songbook? Post your lists here - and preferably break them into categories.
One Reminder: if you mention a song that's not in the Digital Tradition or the Forum, please post the lyrics. That's Official Mudcat Policy, Promulgation #001, issued by Dick Greenhaus himself on many occasions.
And I'm late for the San Francisco Mudcat gathering, so I'm gonna hit the road. I want a good list ready for me by the time I get back.
