TFW you just now learn that "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" is an African-American spiritual song that originated during slavery.
There are several films that feature a white actor singing this from a jail cell or some other form of captivity.
@Jo 'When The Saints Go Marching In' is a slave song about how the end of the world would be better than this shit.
@Jo camptown races is an oppressor song about how black people can't talk 'properly' and lose all of their wages at the race track.
the history of Putting On The Ritz was extremely hard to process
@Vordus @Jo don't get me started on Turkey in the Straw (the US ice cream van tune). As a bonus, learning its history also ruins Mickey Mouse
