Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Green Fields of France
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Green Fields of France
Well, I thought I'd send this suggestion in a personal message to Dick Greenhaus, curator of the Digital Tradition:
Hi, Dick - In this thread, somebody suggested that we add "Green Fields of France" as an alternate title for Eric Bogle's song "No Man's Land." Fully aware of your contention that titles are poor tools for finding songs, I call this idea to your attention with some trepidation....
But it seems to me that a whole lot of people primarily use titles for finding songs, so maybe it's an idea to help them out and cross-index, at least when the secondary titles are very common, like in this situation.

I'm sure Dick will come back with an entertaining response...
