Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over
Subject: RE: Lyrics please:20th Century's Almost Over
If there's a site this informational for "singer/songwriters" I'd sure like to know about it. My father (a "purist") and I (a "liberal folkie" with definite singer/songwriter tendencies) often debate about what is or isn't "folk". By his definitions there can never be another folk song written, ever - even if a song is still popular in 500 years- because now we keep track of who WROTE it....I don't call singer/songwriters "folk" singers (and most of them don't like to BE called folk singers) but I've found lyrics here, and I've been impertinent enough to ask for some. Fortunately I haven't been lambasted (yet). This is a great site with such a wealth of musical knowledge between the visitors that it seems a waste to be so specific.
