Thread Name: Learning to love a 'bad' song
Subject: RE: Learning to love a 'bad' song
I've been singing the one about George Fox in his old leather britches and shaggy-shaggy locks for 25 years and still hate it. That, and "Old Joe Clark". I will never like that tune.
Sometimes a fresh arrangement--not based on a popular one by someone else, but really rehashed--helps. That's what saved "Whiskey Before Breakfast" for me. Or, i try to find something positive--"John Stinson's #2" is boring but the chords are OK, so I focus on messing with that instead of how much I dislike the melody.
Sometimes songs grow on me. Sometime, though, I just hate a song, and no turning back.
