Frank in the swamps Examples of songs that changed something. (39) RE: Examples of songs that changed something. 22 Sep 98


Between Tim Jaques & Art Thieme I'm about to change my tune when it comes to folkies being a socially responsible group!!!

As a young fellow (10 years old) freshly transplanted across the Atlantic, I remember having mixed feelings about Johnnie Horton's (correct?) song, The Battle of New Orleans. It's a great song, but at the time I wasn't able to identify with the Americans, and I had a little trouble with it, even though I liked it. Art mentioned people who died for their songs, I wonder if the enemies of the songwriters aren't more affected than the friends. Truth can be hard to take, you know?
