Thread Name: 'Owned' songs
Subject: RE: 'Owned' songs
Some people are possesive by nature, and there is the problem of the regulars' habituation. You betta dun sing it either the same of not at all.

I sing "the Carter" and the guy who used to sing it was happy for me to sing it, he found new songs to cherish. I now have a memory of that guy, he was a real nice chap. And I cherish his memory, and keep it alive by singing his song, with as much of a Welsh accent a "Black Country" boyo can muster - in his memory.

Sometimes pinching songs gets you more than the song.

If I was at an unfamiliar event how would I know I was crashing someone's act? Unless he has already sung it, in which case why would I sing it that night?
