Subject: RE: Is this tune appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
1. No, it's NOT politically correct. On the other hand, neither was most of the folk music (60's, USA) I grew up hearing. :~) Not then anyhow. Then it was. Now it's not anymore. Go figure.

2. I'm so lucky-- I play and sing for church every week, and I get to pick all our band's music. To do that I listen to an average of more than 100 songs a week. Out of that I "hear" the necessity for doing an average of 1-10 songs. Out of that group there may be one (or there may not be any) that I simply have to do that week, and I work up the arrangement and any lyric smoothing that day, if possible. I get lost in these, and we just HAVE to do them. If I died "today," THAT would be the song I'd be more than content to die, singing. And song by song, I can say why that is so, for that song, that day, that week.

Are you lucky enough to be that particular? Do you have that much to choose from and time to hear it? Is this a song you would be content to die, singing, as your last song?
