Thread Name: Ireland's Favourite Folk Song
Subject: RE: Ireland's Favourite Folk Song
" I guess it is not really a pop song by your definition is it?"
I have no definition of pop song other than popular
Most disappear shortly after they have run their commercial value - others become 'standards' - still pop but old pop
It's a great song - one of namy I play regularly, lik mid career Sinatra, or Billie Holliday, or Ella....
Dooesn't make them anyything other tha what they are - certainly not folk
Enjoy Morris - or Bernard, or George...
