Percustard Australian/American songs: similarities (62* d) RE: Australian/American songs: similarities 23 Jun 02


Hi all,

This is a good thread. If a little off track toward the end from the original title of the thread.

There are a few other threads on Craigielea and Waltzing Matilda in Mudcat.

I agree with Bob. Indeed, (shameless plug alert) my band Tursacan does a rendition of Craigielea which segues into Waltzing Matilda (in 5.4 - there is a 5.4 bar in Macpherson's "original").

It is interesting how song origins get "muffled" and "muddled" over the centuries. It is sometimes very hard work getting to the heart of the matter and putting together an arguable case based on "facts" and rational induction.

Its like genealogy in song!
