No singing, but, "Road to the Isles," played on pipes and drums by the Scots Guards Training Battalion. It's on a Beltona 78, the flip side of which is something called "El Alamein."

I've just been listening to a fine rendition of Stan Rogers' Northwest Passage (Tom Lewis and a group called Poles Apart?) -- and I am sitting here puddling up.

Who knows how to get a mass petition going? This must be our national anthem -- it must!

For that I'd stand and sing out loud -- and so would you.

A favorite song? It's not a favorite, per se, but one that never fails to stir my emotions is Dame Vera's "White Cliffs Of Dover".

"Bourgeois Town"--Leadbelly
"California Uber Alles"--The Dead Kennedys
"Everyone Reminds Me Of My Dog"--Jane Siberry
"Love Over and Over"--The McGariggles,

and Billy Bragg singing "Jerusalem" or whatever it's called, the poem by William Blake that was turned into a hymn.

Those would be my desert island songs.
