Subject: Origins: Mudcat songbook for Blue Plate Special 2

Folks, Whilst I have had a good initial response for the BPS2, and have a few promises in the pipeline, strikes me that maybe some of yous are still looking for inspiration.

So I'd like to suggest the possibility that you browse among Aines Mudcat Songbook for something to add to the BPS2. 'Course something would need to be worked out with the authors regarding permission and royalties, (although the composers themselves are encouraged to send their own versions - HINT, HINT) but I'll bet that the majority of them would be most amenable to someone else having a go. Remember "White snow of Springtime" by McGrath and sung by Aine on BPS1, its in the songbook

AND, is it not a great opportunity to get some of those songs out of the book and into our lugholes?

The link to the site is below or HERE

http://reocities.com/SoHo/Easel/5746/

Lots of good songs in wait of an airing. Remember, we nearly lost these at one time!


Here's a random example (begging your permission, Shambles)

Song for Mudcatters by The Shambles


The Shambles' Comments: It is not very likely, unfortunately, that the vast majority of Mudcatter's are ever going to be in the same place at the same time, physically. Although it seems like it happens on-line, sometimes and this was the thought behind this song. Maybe those who are lucky enough to get together could sing it (and others) for those of us that are not there?

It has not received a title yet, what would you suggest a good title might be (or is this asking for trouble)?

To be strummed, lustily, around the campfire, or on lonely hilltops, in good old G major.

G
Just another singer
C
With just another guitar
G
It don't matter what you want to be
...........D
It only matters who you are
G
I look forward to that day
...........C
And I hope it won't be long
..............C.........D......................G
When we all get to sing the same song

C..................................G
We can sing it it high and we can sing it low
C...........................D
We can sing it fast and we can sing it slow
G
I look forward to that day
................C
And I hope it won't be long
....................G........D..................G
When we all get to sing the same song

We come from many countries
We are both old and young
We may all come from many faiths
But the singing makes us one
I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song

place for ocarina solo

We can sing it it high and we can sing it low
We can sing it fast and we can sing it slow
I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song

We have different views
That's the way it'll always be
It don't matter who's right or wrong
We'll just agree to disagree
I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song

Place for massed tiple ensemble

We can sing it it high and we can sing it low
We can sing it fast and we can sing it slow
I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song

It may come as a struggle
It maybe just a breeze
You may sing like a croaking frog
Or the birds up in the trees
I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song

We can sing it it high and we can sing it low
We can sing it fast and we can sing it slow
I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song

Australian marching bands and big finish

Roger Gall 1999

Take a look at some of the others. There is still plenty of room on the BPS2 CDs
