    Full speed ahead, on a dark moonless night, ignoring wireless reports of ice in the area...

    I bet it could even be made into a decent movie.

    Metal Church did a cool song about it in the 80’s.
    I don’t remember the name of it. I really can’t bothered to figure it out.
    Interesting how it has captivated so many people for so many years though.

    Jaime Brocket did a 13 minute version of the Legend of the Titanic, the progressive rock stations would play it after midnight in the 70’s...

    Last known photo of the Titanic before the sinking.

    "We've got enough lifeboats for 1/3 of our rated capacity, does that sound good?"

    "Sure, whatever"

    That reminded me that Monte Montgomery does a very funny live abridged version of The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald which unfortunately I can't find, probably because of copywrite issues

    It happened before, it will happen again, for the same reason.

    I'm old enough to remember seeing some of the survivors give TV interviews on the anniversary, and I think they even had reunions if I recall correctly. I'm pretty sure there were still some living when the Cameron movie came out in 97

    Wiki copied:
    After the Titanic hit an iceberg and began to sink, Hartley and his fellow band members started playing music to help keep the passengers calm as the crew loaded the lifeboats. Many of the survivors said that Hartley and the band continued to play until the very end. Reportedly, their final tune was the hymn "Nearer, My God, to Thee".[3] One second-class passenger said:

    Many brave things were done that night, but none were more brave than those done by men playing minute after minute as the ship settled quietly lower and lower in the sea. The music they played served alike as their own immortal requiem and their right to be recalled on the scrolls of undying fame.[4]


    Beautiful

    I was going to mention this. I have a recoding if Remember The Wind And The Rain around here somewhere. I need to find it. I believe the actual title is The Ballad o the SS Titanic.
