Song heard in the Port

I heard this song sung by a group marching by the Port the other day, before the curfew was lifted.  I think they must really miss Tenk (or they just don’t like being “Under Underby”).

I recorded what I could of the song onto a phonograph cylinder.  You can hear it here:  Under Underby

    Dear Mr. Culdesac,

    I am penning this note to you in order to inquire about your lovely piece of music. Is there an .mp3 version of this that I could procure? I would love to run it in our rotation on Radio Riel Steampunk.

    Long live Mayor Tenk!

      Gabriel, i would recomend to you to get the addon to firefox that lets you download any youtube material and trun it into, for example, MP3  with a aimple rolldown meny under the song in the playwindow. 

      it is a incredible usefull tool.

      And.. as saying this..i also like to add this to my playlist.. as i usually play it in Porthead tavern.. it will be most fitting :)

    In any great city, the voice of the people is captured during significant events. I think it’s valuable to New Babbage that you’ve helped to do that.

    Well done, Mr. Culdesac.

    “Under Underby” is now in rotation on Radio Riel Steampunk.

    I have it playing once every three hours. If it gets to be too much, I’ll dial it back.

    I take it the one singing is a clockwork?  Kinda sounds like one anyway.

    /me sheds a quiet tear.

      All three singers are clockworks.  They sound a bit odd from time to time, but they sing much better than I do.  (( I used Melody Assistant with Virtual Singer doing the voices.  ))
