Subject: RE: More Kytrad on youtube
I sniffed a conspiracy once. Smelled something like a rancid ramp. What a stench! I don't get that smell around here, but let me tell Jim there a tale on YOU!
Jim, you've been around here long enough to know that digging for info on songs is still one of the best things we do. Jean thought it might be a good place too so she brought us a song to research. Now generally one of the best ways to get info on any song is to get some info if possible from the artist or artists who sang it and of course try to find the writer and get an idea of where the idea for the song came from and the like.
So Jean tells us she wants to know more about this song called "The World Is Old Tonight".......Seems that this song has only been recorded by one artist and the author is known although deceased. Sounds pretty easy huh? Yeah.....well.......The artist in question was Jean herself and her SISTER wrote the song! What Jean wanted to know is where her sister got the idea and/or the words for the song. This HAD to be the strangest research thread we ever had. The only artist to record it had NO INFO about it short of the fact her sister wrote it?!?!?!?
CLICK HERE and check out the thread to see how weird it was and to see how we did.
