Subject: RE: The essence of the music to folks
I'm with the three of you on the uses of song/melody in every-day life.

J-boy, I have loved that song since first hearing it in the early (?) 1950s. Funny that a song written in 1876 by Henry Clay Work would still resonate with a kid about 80 years after. Heck, it still resonates with me today, fifty-five years after THAT!
