  5. This was a haunting song way back when. The ryhming words so peotic and the unusual instruments made it quite catchy. I enjoyed working on this prompt.

  8. I love that song! I remember my mom and her best friend used to play it all the time, they sang along and aloud, although they did not know the English lyrics. Maybe the song used to have a Bulgarian version of the lyrics, such things were usual in those days...
    Great tune! I doubt my poem is nearly as well-made, yet it was a real pleasure writing it!
