Thread Name: Schooldays Over - sung by Chieftains
Subject: RE: Schooldays Over - sung by Chieftains
Am I issing something here?
I hadn't heard 'The Chieftains!!' version of Scooldays Over, so I Googled it.
What I got was a quite nice choral piece followed by a fairly dire Gene-Autrey- soundalike rendition of what I know to be a good powerful song - the pseudo Mid-Atlantic accent really didn't help.
Is this what passes for good nowadays?
It seems like the older I get, the more the Emperor's new clothes look like bare flesh.
