Thread Name: 'Learned from the singing of...' ?
Subject: RE: 'Learned from the singing of...' ?
I'm blessed with a near photo/phonographic memory for songs (don't ask me where the car keys are...), generally try to avoid lifting things off recordings and do quite a lot of research. And I've learned many songs from other singers, family and even the occasional old boy in a pub. It's no big thing, it's not prestigious - it's just the way it works for me and I've been doing it for a lot of years. So it really, really pisses me off when I do a song in a club and some pillock attempts to give me a complete discography of where he thinks I got it from...
That's my Mr Grumpy bit over for the day. Thank you for your indulgence.
