Thread Name: Common poems set to music
Subject: Poems set to music
I remember being enthralled with Phil Ochs' musical setting of the poem "The Highwayman", and at the time, mid-60s - I went looking for poems that I could set to music.
I did find a couple poems but I wasn't happy at my attempts at adding a melody.
Has anyone out there got any suggestions for poem(of a folky nature?) that would work as a song.
