Thread Name: Singing in dialect
Subject: RE: Folklore: Singing in dialect
Give credit where you learned the song, if you are going to sing in a 'foreign' accent. That's enough.
And DEAD HORSE, thats great. Do the whole song in pretentious English and I'll sing it.
A group I was in used the 'Banana Boat Song' as first half closer, but we sang it in 'plummy'English, wearing bowlers/derbys and twirling rolled umbrellas.
