Thread Name: Common Scots songs 60 years ago
Subject: RE: Common Scots songs 60 years ago
Yes - scary! Just as in the lines of a song "Oh but the years run fast awa, like the Kelvin tae the Clyde".
Appreciate the efforts being taken to suggest songs only common in the 20s-30s. It can't be assumed that, just because a song is old, it was commonly sung around the time of the world wars. Interesting how much our collective knowledge of old songs has increased following the revival and accessible recorded music - even in the antipodes!.
