JulieF Songs to entertain the Irish Elders (42) RE: Songs to entertain the Irish Elders 24 Feb 06

You have my sympathy Kara - I would tend to assume that everyone knew Auld Lang Syne as well.   I'm always amazed at what people do know and what they don't. You think you've got something really obscure and they all join in with gusto ( ususally doing a slightly different version), you think you'ld treat them to a well known song and no one shows the least bit of recognition.   I am still waiting for someone to claim that one of my own songs was sung by their grandparents.   Saying that I once sang a tune back to a friend and it turned out that he had written it.

I don't think its gameness that keeps me from singing Danny boy - its the memory of a roomfull of over emotional, over seventy year olds.

Thanks everyone for you help once again.
