Mick Lowe Straw Poll _ Your help needed (36) RE: Straw Poll _ Your help needed 28 Feb 00

Thanks Crowhugger
At least you understood what it is I would like to do with this straw poll.. i.e. you asked some people.
As much as I appreciate the other comments, it's not really creating a big enough sample for it to be a meaningful poll...

So here are the "rules" if you care to join in.

1) You ask 10 people to name an Irish song.. these people can be anyone you know or meet.. i.e. family, friends, the person on the check-out counter at the gas station.
2) Make a note of the responses you get
3) send them to me
4) I'll tally them up
5) No cheating..LOL
6) ..optional... if you know any of the 10 above persons well enough to get them to ask a further 10.. please, please, please do so.
7).. another optional.. If you feel like asking more than 10 please feel to do so

We don't need any reasons why any given song is nominated, just the title will do.

McGrath one of the reasons for wanting to carry out this little experiment is to see what "misconceptions" there are out there in the big bad world with regards to "Irish" music.. (Between you and me, I'm expecting "non-Irish" material to be filling the top slots.. good job no one's listening)...

And finally (yes I've droned on).. since you seem preoccupied with discussing Danny Boy, anyone care to bet on what the Featured Song on Prof's Pages is going to be for March?

Thanks now to any of you who take up the challenge

p.s. Don't worry if you can't find 10 people to ask and I'd be very interested if we could get some feedback from countries other than UK + US.
