Thread Name: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
Subject: RE: BS: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
I kinda agree with Tiger. They are all good songs, that's why we hear them so often.

I think, though, that it's the singer that makes the song. I can listen to anything that is sung by a good singer. You must listen to our Seamus singing Danny Boy or Olly McElhone singing Fields of Athenry.

And I heard Terraplane (LEJ's band) do a bloody marvelous rendition of Mustang Sally last Friday. In fact everything they did was great. Why they are not more well known I'll never know.

Some songs get overdone at certain times or in certain areas, so you might get fed up with Tom Dooley for a while or Will the Circle Be Unbroken at another place or another time. But let's not put these songs to far away that they get forgotten. Just try to sing songs now and then that no one has heard before.
