"Down by the Sally Gardens, my love and I did meet."
By Yeats?
Sung by lots . Think Peter Pears,in a Cecil Sharp arrangement

Always wondered what this had to do with Salvation Army till I realised it was Sally as in willows.
Has this thread come to an end? Doesn't show up in the Circus listing 26th January. Or maybe I just can't see it.

There are lots of songs about being lucky or out of luck, but I don't know most of them. Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' song was a very catchy hit, although the content is questionable.

Which inevitably reminds me of the first time I heard that song, in a sample, from:

Stan - Eminem

Be warned - that clip is potentially triggering, contains disturbing domestic violence related content.

I am in a mood for gloom, and so associate this song with the very dark Mr Siegal by Tom Waites. It contains the line, "I shot the morning in the back with my red wings on, told the sun it better go back down..."

Cheer up , person from Romsey; it's a beautiful day in Geelong.

In fact:
I've got the sun in the morning , and the moon at night
No idea where it's from; maybe a bit of Rogers and Hammerstein?
Especially appropriate with the super orange moon, which was also blue, coupled with an eclipse. Astronomers were chortling with delight.

Now this may seem a little of a stretch, but I thought;

and then : Edelweiss,
but ended with the lonely goatherd.
