GUEST,Mickey191 Good Songs You're Sick Of (115* d) RE: Good Songs You're Sick Of 15 Dec 03

Joy-Doing great-hope you are as well.I love most of the songs you've mentioned, especially Shule Agra & Will Ye Go Lassie Go. It puzzles me that some of those would be construed as Irish.

I didn't know the lyrics of Danny Boy were written by one Fredrick Weatherly, an English Barrister. Thanks to a lovely little book penned by Malachy McCourt, which traces the roots of the song, one can learn _everything_ about Danny Boy. I know it's corny--but I do love it.Some of the artists who have covered it: Paul Robeson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Patti La Belle,Elvis, The Flamingos,Twitty,Boxcar Willie, and Carly Simon.                  
That sure is a wide range of artists.
