Thread Name: Lyr Req: Why (why so many active requests?)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Eldorado (Graeme Miles)
Requests can be sorted into two categories. 1) Those by newbies who have no idea how to locate music info on the web 2) genuinely hard to find lyrics, etc.

It took 12 years for someone to find the lyrics and composer of 'Adieu Madras'. It took 7 years to find the waltz 'Hi Lee Hi Lo.'

As for the people who wrote the songs, if they want money, they should make themselves reachable. I would cheerfully pay Will Holt a reasonable fee for 'Adieu Madras,' but he's not accessible.
