It is the style and arrangement, not the song. Somewhere I heard "Yankee Doodle" in calypso arrangement.
I won't throw out my old Belafonte, Kingston Trio, etc, recordings. Pure they ain't, but, as Hrothgar says, good music.
The musician who applies the motto "Neither a borrower nor a lender be" has yet to be born.
