GUEST,Len Wallace Lyr Add: A new Irish rebel song: Starry Plough (11) RE: A new Irish rebel song: Starry Plough 11 Aug 03

Hello friends,

Chantey, yes please feel free to sing it. Thanks.

Gargoyle, I'm always up for criticisms of songs I write. You use the term "pedantic" (definition: overprecise, unimaginative about using knowledge or a "tedious show of dull learning"). Perhaps the song may be considered dull to those not interested in the struggle of working people, but how is the song "pedantic"? Can you give me an example?

You also state it starts with "anachronism" (something that doesn't fit into context chronologically). Can you give me an example of where the song is anarchronistic?

I'll accept the criticisms if they are helpful. Otherwise your comments confuse me.

All the best,

Len Wallace
