The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Anyone know any sadder than this:
Hankies at the ready
Yes the National Anthem!
I Vow To Thee My Country much better.
One of my faves has to be the Maori love song Pokarekare Ana
Anything with Katherin Jenkins in is better, but it's not sadder.
Haley, well wouldn't know if it's sadder as it's all foreign.
Puff the Magic Dragon :crying:
Oh no - not another sexist thread
Try this one:

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.
Loved Judith Durham - something very sexy about her.
SGP is that an 8 track
Just for those like me who think she is the best female artiste of all time. :thumright:
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.
I vow to thee my Country was sung at our wedding on Saturday
You got married on Saturday? Ooh, you kept that quiet... 8O :twisted:
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
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!
Well here she is saying goodbye to the world.
Certainly a good career and is missed.
And still a great figure.
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.
