Thread Name: Superstition: death-causing songs
Subject: RE: Superstition: death-causing songs
Nope, no superstitions (really) regarding songs. Said song ("Isn't It Grand, Boys") was often sung by a dear friend who passed away this past September. But he'd been singing it for years. And a young newcomer is now carrying on that song's tradition within our circle -- as we've parcelled out the repertoire of our friend so the songs (and the memory of his singing them) won't die.

But I stopped singing a parody of "All Around My Hat" ("I'm Going to Kill My Cat") after my cat Peppersass died a number of years ago. Not because the singing of it caused any beloved feline's demise -- I just feel uncomfortable singing it.

I DO pay attention to what earrings or other jewelry I wear in connection with events I want to happen, and dreams that I may have, and the like.

But I've never had a problem with songs.
