concertina ceol The National Trust. Folk CD (89* d) RE: The National Trust. Folk CD 12 Jun 07

Although I applaud the NT for realeasing and marketing this CD, there were/are a little misguided in their selections.

I really like the Joy Division song "Love will tear us apart" and I like the Oysterband cover of it but here's some wiki facts about that song.

"The song was written in August and September of 1979 and was debuted when the band supported Buzzcocks on their UK tour in September and October of 1979. The lyrics are perceived to reflect the problems in Ian Curtis' marriage to Deborah Curtis, as well as his general frame of mind in the time leading up to his suicide. Deborah Curtis had the phrase "Love Will Tear Us Apart" inscribed on Ian Curtis' memorial stone."

Maybe it is a "contemporary" folk song after all?
