If this week's topic had been songs about the riverbank, we would all have had a whale of a time. The riverbank is where all manner of debauchery takes place; where parties can last all night, and lovers are brought together in bucolic bliss, only for one of them to end up pregnant and the whole thing to tumble towards tragedy.
