Thread Name: Help Choose 20 Most Popular Irish Songs
Subject: RE: HELP CHOOSE 20 MOST POPULAR IRISH SONGS
David Ingerson: thanks very much for a thoughtful reply. I think I read more into your post than was there, and now I understand it clearly. It's an ongoing problem in discussions, with words like sean nos,ballad, folk, traditional etc being used freely in discussion when they mean totally different things to different people: or totally different things to the same person in consecutive sentences!!
Back to the main thrust of the thread: Whisky in the Jar and the Wild Rover are fine down at Scruffy O'Hooligans theme bar on Friday night, but we probably dont need another CD with this sort of stuff (unless someone's come up with some seriously radical new treatments.
