Let me rephrase that:

"On Top of Spaghetti" appears to be somewhere in Rise Up Singing Again. For that entry, the melody is given as On Top of Old Smokey. This would suggest that On Top of Old Smokey is itself a well-known song, well worth singing together. But curiously, I can't seem to find the song itself anywhere in RUSA.


BTW, the internal alphabet doesn't work for me, for that page. Though they are quite nice about it, I'd prefer to not complain about another of their pages unless I'm sure I'm not the only one having a problem with it. Does anyone else have trouble jumping to a location somewhere on that page, rather than to its top?

There are some great ideas here. Anybody want to choose a chapter and start a PermaThread? Gerry, do you want to do Australian songs? Canadian Songs? Great American Songbook? Disaster Songs? Murder Ballads?

Have you been taking note of the sets of words that you have been fishing out and posting at the online sings? Based on the crowd reactions to some of them, it would give you a good idea what to include from what's been sung and shared.

The other day,for example, I gave you a Roud Index number on "Erin's Farewell" that ended up getting a good reaction from the assembled singers and feedback in the Zoom Room chat. I hope you are assembling a lot of such songs as you go along, especially since you have just done a lot of the research already.

Put them aside and possibly run them by Mudcat Assembled for further consideration, if you haven't already after on your own. You are acting as a collector as you are hosting, anyway.

"I would hope that they would be songs that are fairly well-known. the idea is to make a third collection of songs for people to sing, rather than presenting a list of obscure songs that people may never sing."

I would hope there would also be obscure songs that people would sing, if only they knew those songs existed. The great thing about the two books is that not only do they have a lot of my old favorites but that when I heard a fine song I had never heard before there was a good chance I'd find it in one of the books. I think people would like, and would want to sing, the songs I listed way back at the beginning of this thread – the singers and the songs just need to be introduced to each other.

Can't say I know anything about Marie-Claire, Mysha. You certainly don't mean the fashion magazine, do you?

The Mary Ellen Carter is in Rise Up Singing and there's a spider parody in Rise Again, so you don't need to worry about that one being in Volume 3.

But do tell us about Marie-Claire songs. We could learn something.

I'm really enjoying the chance to see the songs that are treasures to various Mudcat gets. This thread is simply to gather ideas, so there are no restrictions on the names of songs you want to post here. I ask you not to criticize the choices people make. In the end product, the songs that are chosen we'll have to be songs that are easily sung, preferably by groups. I would hope that they would be songs that are fairly well-known. the idea is to make a third collection of songs for people to sing, rather than presenting a list of obscure songs that people may never sing.

Another category: hymns for non-believers - inspiring songs not based on religious beliefs, that everyone can sing in unity.

There are some great songs on that list, Barrie. Many of them are already in "Rise" books 1 and 2, so they won't be duplicated.

Others break a rule that Blood/Patterson didn't have for the first two books: familiarity. That being said, there are still some really great songs on your list that should be included in Rise Up Mudcat!

Could it be that we didn't put "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" in the first two books? And how about Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces"?

I think the goal of the "Rise" books is to present a selection of songs that people can sing together, and that they like to sing. This is infuriating to exclusionists, but such is life. These are simply enjoyable, singable songs.

Joe,
Going back to 17/May:
Only problem is, it's difficult to reorder threads once things have been posted - so it would be hard to have added songs in alphabetical order.
I get away with it in the BBC song book threads by opening two tabs with Mudcat, and pasting from one to the other (usually between two 'edit' boxes to retain any format).
Admittedly this loses the name/date of the original post, and the originals don't appear on lists of posted comments. The original name/date could be retained by starting each post with a copy/paste "This post was originally made by Joe Bloggs on 32nd July 2020". Obviously it still won't appear in 'joe bloggs's' list of posts, but it is identifiable. (and not so much problem if posters know in advance, like the DTStudy threads, that the discussion is open to editing actions)

Also, if I know I'm going to be shifting a good number of entries I go through first creating a sufficient number of new posts "This post deliberately blank . . ." so no-one can post something in the middle of my transfer actions.

If it involves a large number of posts you may need one or more volunteers with edit buttons. (Oops, just used the 'v' word.)

Hope this helps. I haven't sent it as a PM as others may have better solutions.

Cheers

Loved both RUS and RA as a starting point for learning songs. After years of digging through "the blue book" I'm still finding new treasures at singarounds. Blessings to you for your work on RA ... a brilliant resource and fitting sequel. The third online is an inspired and intriguing idea. How about a "Great American Songbook" category? Some of these pop songs are getting close to 100 years old;I find it a fascinating trend that some of the seminal singer/songwriters from the 60s and 70s have been covering them, including Dylan and now James Taylor

Instead of forcing things into a specific order, perhaps they could simply be indexed and linked, as we now do so that someone looking for x could go down the list of a general subject, click on the title and arrive directly on x, as we already do with threads and songs that relate to subjects under discussion. That would also allow hyperlinking for relevance at the end of an entry, let us say, to a YouTube of the song.
This project seems perfect for overcoming the limitations of paper books. By creating the ability to add versions, you would be creating something closer in spirit to Child's approach to presenting songs than to having people say "This is THE official version of this song. It says so right here right here in the book." I believe we both agree that this is a major objection to people who treat RUS as the authority instead a starting point to making a song their own.

Well, I can add things to closed threads. I can also make them PermaThreads and assign an editor. That's why I think we need "feeder" threads for discussion and suggestions, and then we can add to the final chapter. Only problem is, it's difficult to reorder threads once things have been posted - so it would be hard to have added songs in alphabetical order.

I don't have the first two volumes, so I don't know if this has already been used, but...

Murder Ballads

From the sublime to the ridiculous, think of the possibilities.

I'm thinking that the finalized chapters will be closed threads, with just the song lyrics - and a separate thread to discuss each chapter and submit links to lyrics (lyrics themselves should be posted in existing or new song threads, following our usual one song/one thread practice.

Any suggestions for chapter titles, so we can start some chapter threads?

I think maybe we shouldn't duplicate songs that are already in Rise Up Singing or Rise Again.

I've been thinking about your note. I suggest you adopt a format that allows song posts only on the threads. These threads would be posted as links above the list of posters. Discussions could be accommodated by a new category, something like "about: XYZ." This would keep the main song threads from becoming cluttered with commentary and, at the same time, allow people to discuss entries.

No, what I'm thinking of, is having it right here at Mudcat, one thread per chapter, with this thread as the planning thread. I think we need songs that people are likely to actually likely to learn and sing, a treasure of the familiar (but not the trite). And I have a preference for songs people can sing together, at least on the chorus.
Name a chapter title, and give us some songs from that category that you think people would like to sing.
I'm open to suggestions for titles for this songbook. Right now, I think the working title should be Rise Up, Mudcat!

Will there be a paid subscription or will it be a labor of love, like the DT?

It'd certainly be a neat way to make the book more accessible

I suggested that we should start working on a third volume of the Rise Up Singing Songbook, and Peter Blood and Annie Patterson said, "You do it, Joe!"

So, I think we should make an online songbook at Mudcat.

The first two books were Rise Up Singing and Rise Again. I love both books, and I worked very hard on the second one and continue working on a database to support the books with YouTube videos and background information. But I have to say I don't like many of the songs in these books.

OK, so I'll say more about this later, but one song that has to be in the third volume of Rise Up Singing, is "Log Driver's Waltz."
