    How about "Sixteen Tons?" Hey, it's not such a strech. After all, mine and caisson worker health was the impetus for all those tables. And if the original lyrics (sung by the inimitable Tennessee Ernie Ford--check out that mustache, nicely trimmed down to acommodate the mask skirt) don't move you, I posted some new ones on another scuba poetry thread here.

    Chorus:
    You breathe three thousand pounds, whaddaya get,
    Another day colder and deeper and wet.
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't stop,
    I owe my soul to the local dive shop.​

    Good idea for a thread. Great tunes so far. I would include "Southern Cross" Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
    OK maybe a little Enya (don't mean to be a new age yuppie but O. Flow song is cool)

    Just heard Sara Bareilles singing Love Song for the first time and I liked it.

    Head under water
    And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
    The breathing gets harder, even I know that
