Subject: BS: BBC's top ten tunes vote
From: Coyote Breath

My oldest daughter emailed me that the BBC is conducting a "Vote for your Favorite Tune" sort of thing and she has been urging all her friends to vote for "A Nation Once Again" by the Wolfe Tones. As an answer to the query Why? she suggests "800 years!"

I did this just for fun and when visiting the site I found that while "A Nation Once Again" didn't make the top ten it DID show up as number twelve!

I'm not sure just what that implies, if anything. But if the "contest" is still going on it might be interesting to participate and see what the results turn out to be.

Surely Mudcatters might have quite a few interesting songs to suggest for a Top Ten List?!

There are far too many good tunes around to have only the one.
So I would have to say that the top 10 should consist of at least one of these fine tunes

    King of Nothing by the Kevin McDermott Orchestra
    What comes to pass       "            "
    Going Home               Dire Straits
    Loch Lomond             Run Rig
    Yellow on the Broom      Adam McNaughtan
    I Can Feel It            The Silencers
    Always look on the bright side of life
    Immortality             Celine Dion
    You wont listen          The riverdetectives
    Perfect Gentleman       Wyclif Jean

as i said far to many songs left out so this. I ll probably come back later and add a few more but hey thats the whole point in having an oppinion
Cheers

"A Nation Once Again" was written by Thomas Davis, not the Wolfe Tones. Scratch the surface, see what lies beneath. Davis was the leader of Young Ireland and died in 1848. He wrote other stuff as well, like "The West's Awake". Check him out.
