There's no excuse for anybody ever to sing Dirty Old Town or Poverty Poverty Knock again.

I hate it when you go to see someone who is famous for one particular song and they've probably been asked to do it every night for the past 30 years, then they sing a completely different, and usually inferior arrangement.
I hope to see Ralph McTell on his current tour. I would rather he left Streets of London out of the programme, it's a good song, but I've heard it too often. But if he does feel obliged to sing it, I'd prefer him to do it properly!
