Subject: Lyr Req: Song about Wind Farms
From: Weasel
Date: 11 Apr 10 - 01:01 PM

A while ago on Radio 4 (Uk)there was a fake folk-song supposedly written in the future, on the subject of the shutting down of the old wind farms.

It was in the sentimental style of folksongs regretting the passing of, for example, the hand weaving or the sailing ships, but was about the passing of the "silver blades that now will sweep no more" (or something like that - much better.)

Did anyone catch it by any chance, or does anyone have any information about it?

can't help with the specific question

but
Try and catch the wind
Windmill song
Four strong winds
Down in the valley

Blow ye winds in the morning
Blow ye winds southerly
Western Westrin? winds
October winds
Big high wind that blew the goalpost down
Southwind
Blowing in the wind

O they're not laughing at the windmill any more
They're not laughing at the windmill any more
Sun and wind will still be there
When the earth is all stripped bare

No they're not laughing at the windmill any more

A gift, such as it is, to anyone who can massage and make a song out of it.

Rank after rank, on a brush covered hill,
Stand tall alien beings, unearthly and still.
An army of sentinals standing their watch,
In gleaming white rows which no mortals could match.

Awaiting the winds that will stir them again,
Their eerie white paddles, like the wings of a plane,
In stately rotation, they arc through the sky,
I behold, mesmerized, as beneath them I lie.

Woof woof, woof woof, as they rip through the air,
A scythe to the eagle that flies unaware.
The current they send to the home far away,
A gift from the winds as they go on their way.
