I bet it's awkward! Of the names I know on your list, all the first group are dead, the second group alive.

Well, what do you expect? The live ones grew up in the latter-twentieth century, not in a sod hut!

I agree with Capt Birdseye's last comment on this. Check the calendar. It's 2009! Then again, he started the thread, so I guess, (I've been looking at some old threads) I know what a wind-up is now.

For gods sake, what matters is that people keep singing songs that deserve singing, not how many purists can dance on a traditional pinhead.

Regards to all.
