  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

An eerie song that helped children on a Titanic lifeboat block out the cries of the dying can be heard once again.

The song came from a musical toy pig that belonged to Edith Rosenbaum, an American fashion journalist, who was 32 at the time of the tragedy.

Rosenbaum and her pig survived the sinking in April 1912, but unfortunately the mechanism that played the music didn’t.

Now the National Maritime Museum has fixed the musical toy and made a recording of the song 101 years after the event.

Pretty amazing, but imagine how much more amazing it would've been if after they fixed it, it started playing Slayer.

I've heard that tune before.

I think it was while I was frying bacon.  :passifier:

If the song isn't "rock the boat" I'll be disappointed

and disappointment was experienced.

Wow...that's deep. To think it was played during the sinking of the ship...goosebumps.

Anyone who heard this song got a telegraph seven days later, and died!

My god! How that ghost makes me dread
My attempts to sleep at night, in my bed
All that moaning and groaning
Keep me awake until morning
Oh wait --- it's that couple next door, newly wed!
