Thread Name: Origins:Matilda [Mathilda](King Radio/Norman Span)
Subject: Origins: Matilda- similar songs?
I don't know if I am allowed to create a new thread for this, but can anyone give me examples of trad. songs with similar themes to "Matilda" or "Matilda, Matilda" by King Radio, which is sung from the perspective of a man robbed and left high and dry by his lover, who leaves for Venezuela? Caribbean/West Indian folk songs would be preferable.
Hi - in general, we allow one current discussion on any given topic. Having two or more discussions going of the same song, at the same time, has proven to be confusing and to lead to duplication. So, please keep it to this one thread for now.
