While much used about the sinking of the Titanic, and has been composed, recorded over a hundred years back, little attention has been gotten by other shipwrecks. Although all but one of these shows has essentially vanished, a few have acquired some notoriety through pictures.
Its renown is owed by one well-known sea disaster a tune, although not to a picture. The Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank on November tenth just forty years past, was the issue of a smash.
The tune narrates fairly exactly what occurred on the day to the freighter it capsized in Lake Superior. A hefty load of iron ore was carrying from Superior, Wisconsin when it was caught in hurricane strength winds. When it capsized, just two hours from its destination, all twenty-one of the guys on board perished.
In tunes, the narrative of other boats are told like the Edmund Fitzgerald. The Titanic has been, needless to say, the most frequently used recently by renowned songwriter Bob Dylan on his record The Tempest. There’s likewise a great bluegrass melody about the Titanic, “The Great Ship” by an Ohio group known as the Dry Branch Fire Squad.
All the News That’s Fit to Sing was written about the planet ‘s worst sub catastrophe for a tune on his album by the folk singer.
In 1941 a German U-Boat torpedoed this Navy destroyer, causing the deaths of 100 lives before America had entered World War II. The folk trio was able to turn the occasion into a favorite ballad with a catchy refrain.
Formally called the Yew, this boat was transferred to the French Navy in 1944. Although it didn’t sink until a couple of years after his passing, Ochs’ ballad from his Rehearsal for Retirement record referred to the boat’s leaving America to never return.
These two melodies worry the boat made famous by The Perfect Storm, the Academy Award movie starring George Clooney. The foremost is a rock tune, while the other combinations touches of Scottish and Irish music.
