Willie-O Songs people aren't used to hearing (27) RE: Songs people aren't used to hearing 28 Jul 10

"Summer Wages" is still one of my favourites to sing--but I've noticed that it is unfamiliar to a lot of people. I think that's because there hasn't been a hit cover of it in the past god-knows-how-long. Most folks recognize its lyric greatness even while tut-tutting about the superficial sexism (it is not at all disrespectful to the woman, just uses some anachronistic references--in essence, it's about a man messing up a good relationship--hey, I think it's a feminist anthem!)...but not so many will add it to their repertoire.

Whatever...I keep playing it.
