Thread Name: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
Subject: RE: BS: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
"Oh No, Not the Fields of Athenry
If I hear it one more time I think I'll Cry
They should Ban the bloody thing
there are better songs to sing
I'm so fed up with the Fields of Athenry"!

Cllr, and Hilary, The Parody "Oh No not the fields of Athenry " was written by the inimitable Malcolm Austen, and if he is Ok with It I will post the full words here later, apparently the song grew out of a chance remark made by Malcolms SO Moira (Craig) on a tour in Ireland, where, apparently, everywhere they went someone sang " fields of Athenry". Malcolm also told me that his parody gets very "black and white respnses", people either Love it or Hate it, NO middle ground!!!! I have noticed similar when I have sung it!!
