The Bands last Song : Evidence Revealed

By Brandy L.
Colorado, Age 15

There has been controversy over what song the band on the Titanic played as their last song, some say the band played Nearer my god to thee, others swear they heard either the hymm Autumn or the waltz Songe d'Automne. A titanic survivor Herold Bride claimed to hear the word autumn.
Bride's claim is more believable because he was right beside them listening before he was washed overboard. The survior who claimed to hear Nearer my God to thee had already gotten into a lifeboat.
As you can see there is enormous controversy over the last song the Titanic's band played as the bow sank further in the sea.
