"To suggest a tune repeated over and over and over again is boring wipes out our entire archive of field recordings as "boring" -it's what our older singers did - seldom using ornamentation, never using accompaniment (except for a few rarities) - Walter Pardon, Harry Cox, Sam Larner, Phil Tanner... all dedicated repeaters of tunes - hardly boring."

Well, not something I'd sit down to listen to for an evening's entertainment.
