Doctor John Why do non-PC songs have the best tunes? (40) Why do non-PC songs have the best tunes? 12 Oct 99

Listening to an ageing LP "English Sporting Ballads" by Martyn Wyndham-Read and The High Level Ranters, brought to my mind the Wesley quote about the Devil having all the best tunes. Here are the new 'devil' songs about fox hunting, hare coursing, bull baiting, cock fighting and bare knuckle boxing - all very non-PC subjects. However, this LP has the best songs, melodies and arrangements I've heard and is among my favourites. What do other Mudcatters think of this. Dr John
