My Songs By Topic

Various radio people have told me it would be useful to have a quick and easy way to find songs that are related to a certain subject (where they can be downloaded for free).  I've tried to do that here.

Songs are sometimes about multiple things, but generally the main topic of the song is represented by each heading, and following the title of each song are more general or secondary topics addressed by the song -- or just people, places or things referenced in the song.  Also something about style -- whether it's acoustic or electric, and sometimes if a certain instrument is prominently featured in the recording.

Click on any song title to download (or stream) the song.  If there's a high-quality music video for the song, a link for that is in brackets just following the song title.  You can just do Cntrl+F and type a keyword, or browse the headings...  Songs with a + after the title include a word that the FCC doesn't like.  Please let me know if you find I've missed one.  Other suggestions for making improvements to this?  Please tell me!

You can also find many of these songs listed with notes as they relate to dates in history, in This Month in History and Song.

If you are able and willing to support all that it takes to make high-quality recordings of hundreds of songs and give them away like this, please consider becoming a subscriber!  (There are lots of musical perks involved with being one, too...)

Samson said...

Thank you.

Of course, this led to me picking a song. And then I had to listen to it. And since its on SoundCloud it kept on playing and has been now for several more songs. Since I try to play a bit of guitar, I originally hoped the link led to the songbook. And now that I'm listening to I think a song called Southern Cross, or maybe Song for the Eureka Stockade, I've got to get that songbook out and pick up my guitar and try to play. Which is probably the highest compliment I can pay. So, Thank you!

I love your music and even enjoy your mp3s.
But I would love it even more if your CD quality songs would be available in flac and/or even higher resolutions (96/24 or such).
Thant would be great!
