Thread Name: 'Owned' songs
Subject: RE: 'Owned' songs
Over christmas we performed the Innocents. Turned out a local performer has family connections to the poem writer. They were very kind to give us an ok even though they sing it ( we didn't know ). Slightly different 'own'. When you find a professional has covered a song you have also 'discovered ' - Downeaster by Billy Joel that I found on cassette many years ago and Reunion Hill by Richard Shindell from a CD lent by friend. Nice to know I share musical tastes but the constant " you nicked that from SOH " is annoying. I now check on youtube what has been 'folked' .
