River Deep Mountain High – Tina Turner

Embarassingly, that’s all I can think of…


Pixies – River Euphrates
Talking Heads (or Tina Turner or Eva Cassidy) – Take Me To The River
Kate Bush – Lord Of The Reedy River


Down By The River – Neil Young


I thought of some more:

The Nile Song – Pink Floyd
Ol’ Man River – Paul Robeson
The Riverboat Song – Ocean Colour Scene


Tales from the Riverbank – The Jam

One of their finest songs actually even although initially released as the B side of Absolute Beginners
