Mysha Lyr Req: North Sea Holes (Ewan MacColl) (49) RE: Lyr Req: North Sea Holes (Ewan MacColl) 22 Aug 20

Yeah, but I still wonder what was actually said. When you create songs of life, the person experiencing that life might say he has known that song all his life, That could simply mean that had been the way things were for all his life; it needn't mean he thought he heard someone sing it when he was young.

E. MacColl seems to have taken it as the speaker thinking he heard that song before. (A bad thing, as it means your songs aren't distinctive enough?) But every time I read that claim it makes me wonder whether the singer actually understood what the speaker was saying.
