Sorry about that. I am technologically challenged; in fact I have managed to turn my desktop screen sideways and have sent to my computer guru for help, as I have pressed every button in sight to no avail.
From HELP by the Beatles to Hymn 46 in the Australian Hymnal [Hot and Hormonal] GOD OUR HELP IN AGES PAST.

Indeed Faure's "In Paradisium" is heavenly.
[Overused] But if we are talking about heavenly things,
The golden evening brightens in the west,
soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest;
sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest. Alleluia, Alleluia.

Commonly known to organists who play it as "Pom For All The Saints" (because there's a big POM! before the congregation come in).

So from a Pom song to an Aussie one...

and speaking of tall trees, and the mighty gum, did you know there was an Aussie Group called Red Gum? as for me:
"Give me a home amongst the gum trees
with lots of plum trees [ 2+ lines] ....and an old rocking chair."
Used as the theme for a long running Gardening Program called Burke's Backyard. Said eponymous Burke is now under scrutiny for nastiness.
But the song lives on.

Oh by the way, I am now right side up!

Avoiding the temptation of a million songs with the word 'Baby' in them. That would just be putting Baby in a corner, and nobody does that.

I've Had the Time of my Life

(Incidentally, I once saw one of those 'Top 30 movie quotes' TV programmes on German TV when I was in a Dusseldorf hotel. In German, the famous quote is "Mein Baby gehoert zu mir" - "My baby belongs to me". Um ... not quite so iconic!)
