John Hernandez Songs you thought were trad (155* d) RE: Songs you thought were trad 23 Jan 06


All traditional songs started out with an author, even if that person's name is unknown today. My kids learned "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine" in day camp, along with "Polly Wolly Do All Day" and "Bingo Was His Name-O," and I think that's how most kids learn it today, not from a Beatles record and certainly not from the sheet music. Does that make "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine" a traditional song? Maybe not yet, but it's more than halfway there.
