The wickedness of face cream

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Not sure if we need to start a new thread for "Sheep Songs", but while I think Nick's suggestion is probably correct, another possibility is Bach's "Sheep May Safely Graze". Does the old joke that this is a favourite for butchers' funerals keep us on topic?



I indeed narrowed it down to the Bach.

Given that this thread has gone astray from the first post, I suspect not!

As regards the Sheep Song, further suggestions: This is a list of favourite songs about sheep from a blog on Yahoo:
Top 10 Songs About Sheep

1. Sheep - Pink Floyd

2. Sheep Go To Heaven - Cake (more suitable perhaps for funerals with its line sheep go to heaven, goats go to hell. You can hear it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0mx5ERj1eI

3. Black Sheep - Martin Sexton

4. Black Sheep Boy - Tim Hardin

5. Black Sheep Boy - Okkervil River

6. The Black Sheep's Song - Julian Cope

7. Sheep Shell Corn - Ricky Skaggs

8. Sheep Wait For Wolf - Silkworm

9. Black Sheep Wall - The Innocence Mission

10. Black Sheep - Johnny Paycheck

I could add "All we like sheep" from Messiah, "Baa Baa Black Sheep" "Little Bo Peep has lost..." and "Sheep" by the Strawbs.

Enough choice for you, Hare?

You missed out Sheep may be the face I can't forget, Sheep flies like a bird in the sky and the Arrival of the Queen of Sheep (Baa).

I'll get me wotsit.

What about the Sheep Sheep Song?

Also, young Catholics from Wales going to World Youth Day and similar events (NOT depicted in the linked video) tend to sing the Fluffy Sheep Song at some point...

it'll all come out in the WASH.

Perhaps they are CONDITIONED to it.

No need to get into a SPIN.

Or give a DRUM roll.

I'll get my coat. :roll:
