Joe_F songs that are sneered at (67* d) RE: songs that are sneered at 24 Oct 18

I have never understood the notion of a song being "done to death". Perhaps if I went to as many sings as some of you folks do, I would experience your fatigue, but I suspect then I would quit some of them for other kinds of entertainment. As it is, I find that if a group is singing a song I am very familiar with, I look around, and often see by their faces that some of the people there have seldom or never heard it before, and I vicariously enjoy their fresh acquaintance.

As to sneering, if I am actually insulted by a song, I can take refuge in browsing in my collection, or going to the kitchen or the bathroom, or looking at somebody pretty. That happens, typically, if in my judgment the person who wrote the words has paid no attention to what they mean.
