Subject: RE: Any January Songs?
From: GerryM

DEM NAYNTN YANUAR     [Ninth of January]
Dem Nayntn Yanuar [Ninth of January],” a Jewish folk song that references the Bloody Sunday March of 1905, was originally collected by ethnomusicologist Moshe Beregovsky. Eléonore Weill, vocalist and flutist for new-traditional klezmer band Tsibele, composed and arranged a new melody for the band. “Dem Nayntn Yanuar” is on Tsibele’s album It’s Dark Outside – Indroysn iz Finster.

Translation:

“On the ninth of January we wept and wailed
As they took our brothers from the stock exchange to the jail
Soon as we got there, we all took a vow:

“Brothers and sisters, don’t be afraid of any jails
Come out of the jails to awaken the people,
Come out of the jails with bombs and dynamite.
Destroy the tyrants who are sucking our blood.

“They suck our blood like it’s the best wine
The czar and the government should go to hell–
And they will.

“When someone yelled: Jews, Muslims, and Christians,
We responded with: Down with Capitalism!
Then we, the workers, will raise our heads.
The world will be renewed,
when we, the workers, are free.”

Tsibele is a new-traditional klezmer band based in Brooklyn, NY. Tsibele emphasizes Klezmer’s relationship to regional musical genres and dialects by drawing from the Jewish music of Romania and Moldova, 19th century secular Yiddish folk songs from Eastern Europe, and contemporary folk and improvised music. The band includes Zoë Aqua (violin), Eva Boodman (trumpet), Zoe Guigueno (bass), Hannah Temple (accordion) and Eléonore Weill (wooden flutes and vocals).

On 1 January 1892 the first Ellis Island Immigration Station officially opened, with three ships waiting to disembark their passengers. 700 immigrants to the U.S.A. passed through that day.

ISLE OF HOPE, ISLE OF TEARS (lyrics by Brendan Graham)

"On the first day on January, eighteen ninety-two,
They opened Ellis Island and they let the people through"

Here's a new one,

Battle of January Sicketh
(Tune: 8th of January
Dialect: Missedusurpy)

In 2021 we tried our Coup d’etat
A Steel the Vote march on the Capital
Teutonic horns, machetes and camo flack jacks
Snorting meth and coke, we put our Glocks in our packs.

        They fired their tear gas but our riot kept righton a coming
        Our boys let us through the barricades and Freedom Heros owned the day
        We killed some cops, then they walked us out like tourists
        Confederate flags a-waving we made our rebel getaway.

Ole BoneSpurs said we could take them by surprise
Sick us Proud Patriots on the Gov’ment, we’ll see who’s telling lies
March up to that Libertarred Congress, kill Pelosi and Pence
TeaRump’s in the White House laughing at yuh Dems.

        We couldn’t find AntiFa, so we killed with fire extinguishers
        We chased Pense to his bunker with our crow bars and tasers
        We ran real fast and the Guard was standing down
        We Tea Partied the Capital with an insurrection.

SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY (RAP)

Right from the start this here's a rebel song
It's from the heart I wanna tell you 'bout a wrong
Committed by Britain back in the day
Fourteen murdered, they refused to be slaves
To the crown

In Derry Town
They wouldn't bow down
So they were shot down

A peaceful protest the turnout was large
So the soldiers decided to show who was in charge
Vexed so they flexed, did what papas can do best
When the smoke had cleared fourteen were laid to rest
No riots, no lootin' to start off the shootin'
People emulated King not Seale or Newton
Things forever changed after that afternoon
Brothers started doin' what they had to do
On Bloody Sunday

Sunday Bloody Sunday - still haunted by the cries
Sunday Bloody Sunday - twenty five years of lies

How long must we sing this song
Till the government finally admits that they were wrong

And finally show some decency
Reparation to each family
Treat our people with some dignity
You know their shit really gets to me
The way they try to deny my history
Twenty five years on our people gettin' strong
Thought may hit the Brits it's time to move on
Order the border to be cast out to sea
'Cause that is where it was meant to be
And that would be an appropriate way
To honour those who were slain
On Bloody Sunday

There are several songs and poems entitled "Bloody Sunday" - some about the 1972 tragedy, some about other massacres. And the title SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY has been used more than once. U2, Songwriters: Adam Clayton / Larry Mullen / Dave Evans / Paul Hewson : I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?

https://genius.com/2736306
John Lennon:
Well it was Sunday Bloody Sunday
When they shot the people there.
The cries of thirteen martyrs
Filled the Derry air
Is there any one amongst you
Dare to blame it on the kids?
Not a soldier boy was bleeding
When they nailed the coffin lids!

And the one I already posted, by Chris Byrne of Seanchaí
You can also find a French translation of that one at https://www.antiwarsongs.org/canzone.php?lang=en&id=4572|

Joe Mulheron has a song about BLOODY SUNDAY "... The Widgery mockery, there is not doubt.. ...on Englands's proud history a crime added yet/How can we forgive them? How can we forget?" https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=7947

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLJyeDnGoWI

"Domhnach na Fola" is Irish Gaelic for Bloody Sunday, or "the Sunday of blood". But no, I don't have the lyrics. That song was a response to the Saville Report which accepted UK military responsibility for the 1972 killings. Most of the "Domhnach na Fola" videos coming up on youtube are about another bloody Sunday, during the Irish war of independence, when 14 people were killed in Croke Park sportsground in Nov. 1920.

Pete Seeger and Percy French were both born in May and both died in JANUARY. I have added them to the Any May Songs thread. This month I heard someone dedicate a Percy French song to the author on the anniversary of his death, but on consideration, birthdays are usually the suitable time for commemorating deceased singers and songwriters, though of course we sing some of their songs all year round.

Felipa, the songs which I copied and pasted just above are the songs which are listed for the DT when " Ewan MacColl" is entered in the search window at the top of the discussion forum. Yes, some of the songs in the list were clearly not written by him.

I think with Ewan MacColl there is a clear delineation between songs he wrote or co-wrote, and other songs that he recorded (mainly traditional songs, but MacColl recorded an album of Robbie Burns' songs as well). The one place there is sometimes confusion is whether a song was composed by Peggy Seeger or Ewan MacColl, as they were close collaborators.

In the case of Burns, he adapted folksongs as well as writing original poetry. So sometimes you will find a Burns version and other versions of a song such as Aye Waukin' O or The Curragh of Kildare.

I was thinking of what we would sing to commemorate Pete Seeger (birthday 3 May). He wrote songs but was more important as a performer and leader. There are also songs which Pete had a part in adapting and arranging, such as We Shall Overcome and Wimoweh.

From: Felipa
Date: 25 Jan 22 - 02:10 PM

A GREAT MANY of the songs Geoff Lawes attributes to Ewan MacColl were older songs that MacColl recorded(and/or published in a songbook) and didn't compose: Farewell to Tarwathie, The Sweet Kumadie, Mary Hamilton, Our Goodman, Lambkin, Will Ye Go to Sheriffmuir, An Old Man Came Over the Lea, Cruising Round Yarmouth, Wee German Lairdie, Wae's Me for Prince Chairlie, Trooper and the Maid, The Trooper Cut Down in his Prime, The Newcombe Gauger, The Gairdner Child, The Earl of Errol ... the list goes on

The Folksingers' Ball is a modern parody which mentions MacColl and a great many other singers, but which MacColl neither recorded nor wrote.

Springhill Mine Disaster is by Peggy Seeger, MacColl's wife who both composed songs are her own and together with Ewan.

Many other songs on the list were MacColl compositions, including Freeborn Man of the Travelling People, Joy of Living, Go Down You Murderers (The Ballad of Tim Evans), Sweet Thames Flow Softly .

Geoff Lawes described William Joyce, aka Lord Haw Haw, as an Englishman. I thought William Joyce was Irish. Actually, he was born in the U.S. to an Irish father and an Anglo-Irish (English born) mother. The family returned to Ireland, where Joyce was brought up. Joyce lived in England from his teens and identified as English but that was an adopted persona. I read that he became a German citizen in 1940. He was never a British citizen so technically could not be guilty of treason to the United Kingdom. Joyce did carry a British passport when he went to Germany. He had obtained it by making false statements regarding his nationality. see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Joyce

Among his well-known songs were THE MOUNTAINS OF MOURNE,    THE PRIDE OF PETROVAR,     ABDUL THE BULBUL AMIR,    etc.
Link to recordings and information posted below

25 Jan - Robert Burns was even more prolific, and some Burns songs were already suggested in this discussion last January. Ewan MacColl shares the same birthday and also wrote a great many songs; the best known to the general public are probably THE FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE and DIRTY OLD TOWN .

This year, 30 Jan marks the 50th anniversary of the shooting by British paratroopers of unarmed civilians in Derry, Northern Ireland. The infamous Bloody Sunday, the occasion a civil rights march. A BBC Radio 4 documentary about Bloody Sunday broadcast today (22 Jan 2022, 8-9 pm GMT)open with a brief soundclip of marchers singing
WE SHALL OVERCOME . Another American civil rights song, WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED , was popular among Northern Irish civil rights campaigners of the time.

STEPHEN FOSTER SONG
by Teresina Huxtable


Those whose days were like your own
Are scattered now across the years
Share no countries, plans, or times
Though once we lived on common ground.

CHORUS (after each verse):
Is someone left to know the way,
Protect us, bring us home again?
Sit at table one more time,
Sing that Stephen Foster song?

If we knew then of leaving home,
But tens and twelves are unafraid.
Foresight's dear and hindsight's not,
And far apart is how we've grown.

Roads and paths come overgrown,
Lose the time and lose the way.
Gather those around me now,
I set a table of my own.

January 13, 1864: Death of Stephen Foster.

Larry Kaplan wrote, in the introduction to his song "Dear Friends and Gentle Hearts," "Stephen Foster was only thirty-eight years old when he died, impoverished and alone, in New York City. In his pocket at the time of his death was a small piece of paper containing the first few lyrics of, perhaps, his next song. Foster lived and wrote music in a time when America as a nation was desperately trying to define (or redefine) its own identity, a time of intense nationalism, and yet a time of civil war. Perhaps more than any other popular musician of his time, he helped to shape some of that identity."

DEAR FRIENDS AND GENTLE HEARTS
by Larry Kaplan

Down at Bellevue Hospital,
Out on those nameless wards,
Tonight a young man passed away
Alone, without a word.
Brought there from a boarding house
On the Bowery downtown,
And on his bed a list of things
The nurses there had found.
A coat, a hat, his pants, a vest,
And a beat-up pair of shoes,
And, in his pocket, signed by him,
A dollar I.O.U.;
And a slip of folded paper
Torn off from a paper bag:
The first words of another song
This whole world might have had.

CHORUS (after each verse):
"Dear friends and gentle hearts ... "
Wherever your last songs may be,
Are they lost out in America
Between the centuries?
Are the melodies still waiting
For the ones who need to hear,
Though the piano halls and minstrel shows
Have faded through the years?

Well, the hospital had sent for me,
But no more would they do,
My name and address taken from
Poor Stephen's I.O.U.
They said "He's just a vagabond;
So many more like him.
They spend the last few cents they have
On poor man's rum and gin.
But hard times in America
Are hard times for us all.
Some folks bide for better days;
Some must take the fall.
Some can turn to poetry,
Or lose themselves in song;
Some set out to change the world,
Then lose the path they're on.

So, yes, I knew this gentleman;
Perhaps you've heard the cheers
When Mr. Foster graced this country's
Finest halls for years.
And he led us in the choruses
This whole great nation knew,
But he never recognized his worth
Or what his songs could do.
Now pride brought down by poverty
Is such a tragic thing;
No matter who the man may be,
It steals most precious things.
It takes the faith to know yourself;
It robs the will to try.
But, if it spares your poetry
The music never dies.

Though we seek mirth and beauty, and music light and gay,
There are frail forms fainting at the door.
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say,
"Oh, hard times, come again no more."

FOUR RODE BY, by Ian Tyson, has a stanza,

First time in that province that they'd strung up brothers three
And their sons killed nineteen Germans cross the seas back in seventeen
One thing that's for damned sure they're a wild old family

https://www.sparehands.org.uk/through-the-galleyboys-eyes/

Verse 2  "Fourth week in January, fifty-five was the date,
To the fishing grounds went trawlers, crews, skippers and mates,
Out to the North Sea past Grimsby and Spurn,
But Lorella and Roderigo did not return."

Verse 4"Same week in January, thirteen years along,
The fleet were off Iceland in a howling maelstrom,
With hundred foot waves and thick ice on the mast,
Three trawlers turned over, to the sea they were cast."

January's when cold winds do blow
February brings us frost and snow
March is when young lambs do play
April brings us flowers so gay
May is when the fields are green
June is when new hay is seen
July's days are very warm
August brings the thunderstorm
September's harvest fields are clear
October's when we brew fine beer
November's dreariest days in the year
December ends the fleeting year

ROLL DOWN TO RIO
By Rudyard Kipling
Roll down to Rio (Mainly Norfolk) This poem accompanied Rudyard Kipling's story The Beginning of the Armadillos from his book Just So Stories. Peter Bellamy sang it as Roll Down to Rio, accompanying himself on concertina, on his fourth album of songs set to Kipling's poems, Keep on Kipling.

Dave Webber and Anni Fentiman sang Follow Me 'Ome and Roll Down to Rio in 1998 on their CD Bonnet & Shawl. Jon Boden sang Rolling Down to Rio as the 10 February 2011 entry of his project A Folk Song a Day. The Young'uns sang Rolling Down to Rio in 2012 on their CD When Our Grandfathers Said No. They commented in their liner notes: Rolling Down to Rio appeared in The Beginning of the Armadillos, one of Kipling's Just So Stories, and was given this lovely tune by Peter Bellamy.

I've never sailed the Amazon, And I've never reached Brazil;
But the Don and Magdelana, They can go there when they will!

Yes, weekly from Southampton, Great steamers, white and gold,
Go rolling down to Rio (Roll down—roll down to Rio!)
And I'd like to roll to Rio Some day before I'm old!

Portuguese landed on the soil of Guanabara Bay on the1st January 1502.  The bay forms the opening of a river, hence the name ‘Rio de Janeiro’ which means ‘River of January’.
