Thread Name: What is a Folk Song?
Subject: RE: What is a Folk Song?
The comment about American Idol was that the people don't seem at all embarassed.

Brian, the best karaoke singers don't really need the prompter.

Didn't we have a thread recently about what would be the folksongs of the future?

While we can't accurately predict the future, I wouldn't be surprised if "Ride Sally Ride", "Johnny be Good" and "American Pie" ended up there.
