Rana Songs that have become another's 'own' (40) Songs that have become another's 'own' 06 Dec 99


I was just listening to Martin Simpson's latest CD "Bootleg USA" which has his live version of Anne Lister's "Icarus". This is a song that I love and it is one that has become Martin Simpson's in a manner of speaking.

When we were fortunate to have Anne Lister at the Flying Cloud Folk Club as part of the Toronto North American Folk Alliance Club Crawl, Anne said that she had to put a new tune to Icarus as to try and reclaim it.

So the question - in your opinion out there, what other artists have made somebody elses work their own, and of course, which song?

Cheers Rana
