Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 15 Sep 14

Help me out here someone please,

Jim said 'I can't hear the words of Bounty's two songs - no matter how long he has being performing them - that is what I said and that is what I meant.

Now what I'm trying to establish is
A: is there something wrong with my hearing?
B: is there something wrong with Jim's hearing
C: is it a case of Jim having a closed mind and only hearing what he wants to hear?

The issue here, is that according to Jim, folk/rock makes traditional song 'meaningless' as you can't hear the lyrics. Now I'm not asking you to comment on whether you like folk/rock as a style, as that of course is a matter of personal taste, but to listen objectively and let me know whether you can hear and understand what I'm singing
