Thread Name: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan
Subject: RE: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan
This is so common in trad music. Why spend a good tune on one song that dies out in time?
Now, nicking another person's song is another story. Paul Clayton's "Whose gonna buy you ribbons" became Dylan's, " Don't think twice".
