The West Virginia coal mining accident got me thinking (always a dangerous thing):
Best coal mining novel: "Germinal" by Emile Zola
Best coal mining movie: "How Green Was My Valley" directed by John Ford
Best coal mining song: "1910 Coal Mining Disaster" by the Bee Gees
2nd Best coal mining song: "16 Tons" by Tennessee Ernie Ford.
