Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
It's quite amusing to see how many of his songs have been adopted by the Irish (probably due to "The Furies") - even to the extent that they refuse to believe that they were written by an Australian Scot. "No-man's Land" (Green Fields of France), and "Leaving Nancy" are two examples.

Among my favourites of his lesser known songs are
IF WISHES WERE FISHES and
SAFE IN THE HARBOUR.

There is also this wonderful parody of two of his songs at once NOBODY'S MOGGY'S LAND.
