Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Songs by Hans Eisler
Subject: RE: Songs by Hans Eisler
I would agree - or perhaps we've gone forward, then backward; or just round and round in circles. What I find so compelling about these songs (also some of Brecht's and Maccoll's), is the absolute clarity of the poetry and the political analysis communicated in dramatic, emotive form. They did not mince words.
