Thread Name: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Subject: RE: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Marje... I hear you ;-) lol
George... I have been trying to sing that song all the way through this afternoon without crying. "The Town I loved" had the same effect when I was learning that, and although I have not heard June Tabor sing "Waltzing Matilda" I can well imagine what a job she does of it.
Some songs just have to be sung as they stand and, as a friend of mine pointed out just yesterday, as long as you can put the emotion across then the listeners will go with it.
Still loving the thread. Out I trot again but will look for more tomorrow
Have a great evening everyone :-)
