Shimbo Darktree Tune Req: Fields of Athenry (34) RE: Tune Req: Fields of Athenry 06 Oct 03


What a surge of sentiments emerge when someone mentions a popular song. There appear to be some places (people?) where a popular song is banned, presumably because it is not sufficiently obscure, and cannot be claimed to be known only by the "true believers". "Fields of Athenry" is one I liked from the first time I heard it. I don't give a rat's rectum if it is overdone. Popular songs will get thrashed as a matter of course ... look at "Fiddler's Green".

As a matter of interest,Joybell, I also loved "The Gypsy's Warning" when I was a child, #$%^ years ago (goodness, didn't the number come out?); yet I have never heard it sung live.

Surely we shouldn't stick exclusively to songs which are at least a millenium old!

Chuck things at me as much as you like ... I'm far enough away from most of you!
