Dawn ADD: The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over(Goodman) (68* d) RE: Lyrics please:20th Century's Almost Over 01 Mar 98


Hey, if I PROVE that Steve Goodman was a FOLKSINGER can we all just be happy and get along? So, first there needs to be confusion about who WROTE a song... most "people" have no clue that Steve Goodman wrote half of what he did because so many other performers made the songs "popular" - even more so than Steve himself. And songs have to go through the "folk process" and get changed....well, John Denver re-wrote part of "City of New Orleans" to put it on one of his albums, so that's covered, too. And I'd bet that at least SOME of Mr. Goodman's material will still be being sung in 100 years (from when it was written, at least), to pick an arbitrary length of time - so, there you have it (if a bit prematurely).

;-)

Gads - if no one can take a joke I'll probably be banned for life.....
