pastorpest Folk Songs to Ditch (172* d) RE: FOLK SONGS TO DITCH 23 Aug 00

There are a lot of great songs here that people are currently weary of. Good songs with good melodies and good lyrics that stimulate heart and mind are simply going to come back and back. There can be too much of a good thing.

I know that there is an explosion of singer/songwriters around and from this explosion good songs emerge. But my beef is with all the singer/songwriter songs that have neither lyric nor melody worth a tinker's damn. There have been folk festivals spoiled for me by overdosing on such dribble. The one good thing about these songs is they are instantly forgettable and have a built in self-ditching quality.
