Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Marianina
I can't believe that as a 65 year old that after living through a full life (and one influenced by folk music) that this song has entered my life again after listening to it on a massive cabinet radio at school as an 8 or 9 year old (circa 1955/6
As I recall, all the schools - was it just in England ? (i.e. possibly not in Scotland,Wales or N.Ireland ) were invited to vote for the best song they had heard and sang along to in the school year and Marianina won. It wasn't my choice - but no matter - I can't recall my choice anyway.
"Part of life's rich tapestry" someone used to tell me, amazing !
