My vote goes with Backpacker for the Maori love song Pokarekare Ana

Next is Judith Durham singing "The Carnival is Over" thats for that day I have crashed and get burned.

Click here for Judith as I have yet to manage loadinf video clips.


My sister in law picked that one Nutty for her funeral my brother had never heard it before. "For we may never meet again" brought it all home when it played in the church.

I'm a big Bruce Springsteen fan, and personally for me, the saddest song is his "Your Missing" from "The Rising" album.

I picked this for my baby daughter's funeral a couple of years ago. It's very apt, and I can only bring myself to play it every so often.

Just for those like me who think she is the best female artiste of all time. :thumright:

Certainly one of the best.

I bought a CD of the original Seekers last year.
"The Carnival is Over" is my favourite track.

Strewth, I was a teenager when that was first released!

Rumor has it that a sailor gave her one after she had one too many post gig beverages in a well known sailors hangout in Sydney in the 70s.
