Thanks for the replies.
The songs are
Take it as it comes - The Doors
All along the watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
How far we've come - Matchbox twenty

I can't remember what the last one is. I'll check and
repost.

Why is the gorge closed to commercial boaters? Are there consequences for swimmers I cannot see in the video at this level that make it not worth it?

Yeah no shit? I had no clue that risk was part of whitewater.

Swank - the hydraulics are deep and powerful; getting air while swimming in the Gorge at high water is hard. Flush drowning is easy. Combine that with the fact that in many places, there is no bank- but rather a sheer rock wall riddled with man-made debris like rebar and stuff... and yes, swimming in Royal G at high water is extremely dangerous.
