One of my staff is doing a charity abseil down the outside of a building. She needs a song to do this to which the organisers will play as she decends.

You lot must have some amusing suggestions.

I've just remembered one of my favorite T-shirts to climb in, that had the typical holes caused by getting caught in the rope whilst rappelling had the caption, from Bob Marley - I'm rapping, I hope you like rapping too.

The Superman Theme or the Theme from Jaws.

ps If you are ever snorkelling try using your snorkel as a kazoo and do the Jaws theme underwater. Great effect you will either sh*t yourself or laugh so hard you will inhale water and (nearly) drown..Like I did..

I did that snorkelling thing just a few weeks ago but the nephew I was
trying to spook has never seen Jaws. Shocking parenting!!

She could've had 3 songs the length of time it took her to get down but I know she will read this so well done Laurel.
