GUEST,The O'Meara Irish songs which aren't Irish (121* d) RE: Irish songs which aren't Irish 04 Jan 05


Whwn I was a kid in west Texas, many long years ago, all blue jeans were Levi's and all hats were Stetsons. "Pull on yer Levi's, boys, and grab yer Stetsons, we're gonna ride!" Same way all nose papers were "Kleenex" and all copying machines made "Xerox" copies. It's easier to say "Hand me a Kleenex" than to say "Hand me a nasal tissue." Everyone knew what you meant, without a formal definition.
   I reckon that's the same with "Irish" music. For general purposes, most folks know what you mean when you say "Irish Music."
   Seamus Kennedy: I didn't know La Vie En Rose was Irish until I heard it on your CD.

O'Meara
