Subject: RE: LYR ADD: The Highwayman (Noyes)
I'd say the Phil Ochs tune has become the definitive musical interpretation of the Noyes poem - it's a very spooky melody, and Loreena McKennitt adds sexiness to it (see below-I was wrong about McKennitt). It has been recorded by numerous artists.
Anybody know of other musical settings?
