GUEST,Chris Murray Christy Moore - A bit 'precious'? (107* d) RE: Christy Moore - A bit 'precious'? 03 Feb 08


Christy has total control of his audience. There are always a few hecklers but he knows exactly how to deal with them. It's called respect.

Somebody mentioned audiences singing a song which is different from the way the writer actually meant them to be sung. Does anyone else remember Ralph McTell asking the audience not to join in with "It's a long way from Clare to here"? Apparently the way we've all be singing it is not the way he originally wrote it. He said that it's his song and he'll sing it the way it should be sung.

If anyone's interested, the chorus should go: "It's a long way from Clare to here". We all sing "It's a long long way from Clare to here." The "long" should last 3 notes.
