GUEST,Chicken Charlie Folklore: What is a ballad? (39) RE: Folklore: What is a ballad? 10 Mar 08

Re. Hide Your Love:

What hits you first, feelings or a narrative? Re-do from start.

Sinatra used "ballad" in the other sense; what I referred to as the particularly saccharine lyric type-deal. Not that old blue eyes was particularly saccharine; I like listening to him. He just didn't do ballads in the "folk" sense.
