IMO, he sang the right song - I don't imagine 'The Granemore Hare' or 'Fair Annie' or 'One More Day/Boots of Spanish Leather' would have grabbed the non-folk audience in the same way.
I just don't understand why Martin only got one song when that sack-of-kack shower 'Beirut', whose vomit-inducing 'singer' was effin' abysmal, got two.
Just a matter of taste, I guess.
