Dave the Gnome If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 11 May 19

I have never been one for poetry. I like a good tale and something well written but I could never enthuse over poems like some people did. Until I was introduced to Peter Bellamy's songs putting Kipling's words to music. That really brought the poems to life for me. I guess most ballads may have the same effect.

What has this got to do with anything? Well, for me, neither the words nor the music are more important. It is a combination of the two that does it.

BTW, are the "Barrack Room Ballads" really ballads?
