Lesley N. Most haunting melodies? (297* d) RE: Most haunting melodies? 20 Oct 99

This isn't much use really, but Dark Island was written in 1963.... I have an e-mail somewhere from Barry (Taylor) that gave more information - but can't place it at the moment - I'll keep looking.

I do think it's listed a lot of places as traditional because so many people copied Barry's site and put up his entire site on their space - and their version of his pages is before he took it off.

On the other hand I still have a lot of people writing me insisting that Today is traditional because it was sung in a movie set a long time ago... (that one would be Advance to the Rear with Glen Ford - which notes "Music by Randy Sparks)... And although not traditional, it is certainly a haunting melody along the same lines as Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms and Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes... (says Lesley who has the most unromantic life in entire galaxy...)
