NH Dave Folk Songs That Hit the Charts as Pop Songs (148* d) RE: Folk Songs That Hit the Charts as Pop Songs 22 Dec 06

I believe the approximate date for All Around My Hat, in the UK, was the early 70's.

Elvis' Wooden Heart was from Muss I Den

A number of slightly rewritten folk songs were charted by The Weavers during the early 50's, among them On Top of Old Smokey, The Rovin' Kind, Kisses Sweeter than Wine, and Woody Guthrie's Good Night Irene. Most of these were slightly adapted and copyright under the nom de tune of Paul Campbell, the name The Weavers used to copyright arrangements they had adapted.
