Linda Mattson Songs you thought were trad (155* d) RE: Songs you thought were trad 26 Mar 05

A traditional song is one whose author is not known.   Isn't that the accepted meaning? Of course, there are lots of complexities.

I'm afraid there will be no new traditional songs, with the power of the internet, so perhaps the meaning of the term will change over time.

I'm starting a thread "Songs you were surprised to learn _are_ traditional."
