GUEST,John Hill Worst Song by a Respectable Artist (171* d) RE: Worst Song by a Respectable Artist 30 Mar 01

I have to vote for the Manchester Rambler too .. that line about the spot welder ruins the whole thing. It ridicules the whole purpose of the song. McColl (or James Miller as he surely still was at the time, before he pretended to be Scottish) wrote the song for the mass trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932. He was born in 1915 .. he was only 17 at the time... so I guess he can be excused.
