GUEST,Boab d What makes a traditional song? (60* d) RE: What makes a traditional song? 14 Jul 03


Easy as this well this is what I think
you remember a song that your grand parents used to sing to your mother that was handed down and then your mother sang it to you and then you in turn sing it to your children well thats tradition and because its been handed down for generations but all a wee bitty different then there is always slight changes from every generation. So its really the habbit and continual singing of the previous generations and the reason for it be it a soothing song for babies or a fighting song for men in fact it can be about anything or it can be about nothing just a nice tune. But I think that the answer is definetly in the question
