Now, now, Kathy, if Sheila prefers to be a Stewart then we have to respect her choice! Nice to hear from you, (and perhaps you can suggest why the 'Berryfields of Blair' isn't in the DT. Do you think there could be a copyright issue?)
You are right - a man could sing this song, although I don't think that I'd want to try it in front of Yvonne!
I have occasionally come across the claim that such and such a song is either a 'man's' or a 'woman's' song. For example some people have said that 'The Death of Queen Jane' is a woman's song, although I think that I would sing it myself if I could remember enough of it!
I'd love to hear how many different ways that 'Blue Bleezin..' could be sung. How do you handle it, Kathy?
