Thread Name: In Memory: Stan Rogers (1949-1983)
Subject: RE: In Memory: Stan Rogers
There's a lot of great songs that Stan wrote. I knew a relationship I was in was in trouble when "Forty-Five Years" stopped running through my head when I was hanging around with the party of the second part. (It had been replaced with Richard Thompson's "Walking on a Wire"). Our Christmas band still performs "First Christmas Away From Home." Another Stan song I really like is "Harris and the Mare." Though, I find it's hard to do. If it's over sung, it's ruined, which is why you don't hear a lot of people do it.
