*smile*...well, Dixon and MacColl aren't, anyway...

I wasn't arguing that your list of "songs with a well-known author" was not relevant....only that most of the 'published' lists are biased and that we ought to make an effort to be aware of how fame and numbers are related.

And my side issue was that the "well-known author" limitation kinda leaves out a lot of the songs that Mudcat and the DigiTrad database are supposed to favor and preserve. (I've been struggling with this for 9 years here, Le Scaramouche...don't take it personally..*grin*)
