Chocolate Pi BS: What isn't Folk? (102* d) RE: BS: What isn't Folk? 26 Feb 00


As one of the 'teen folk,' I think (and hope) that most of the awful stuff that people blast at all hours of the night isn't going to be folk music because the folk don't sing/play it themselves, just turn on their stereos or mp3s. The canditates for folk music are the things everybody knows how to sing when we go caroling through the hallways during finals week (Beatles, Tom Leher, 'One Tin Soldier', 'Video Killed the Radio Star', and so on). Music that requires a soundboard that takes up more room than the singers/players and massive amounts of effects and processing isn't going to be folk becuase people won't keep singing it. just my $.02
