Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Last Whale
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Last Whale
I think it's a wonderful song. I'm only familiar with Archie Fisher's version.
I agree too, that it's fine if DaveO doesn't care for it, but a little common courtesy don't hurt either. We don't have to like the same music, but there's too much negativity around to beat down the stuff that isn't our cups of tea... why not be positive about songs and artists and discs you like instead? Admittedly, Andy's active participation in the thread opens him up to comments good and bad, but I think it's an indication of quality that the song is being recorded and covered... certainly a greater degree of sucess than I'm having as a songwriter, and I'd guess that's true of most of the participants in the thread here..
I still think it's quite moving. Thanks for sharing and clarifying, Andy.
