GUEST,Ralphie 'Occupy English Folk Music!' (608* d) RE: 'Occupy English Folk Music!' 07 Nov 11


Jeez...Is this tedious thread still going? Lizzie knows how to press all the buttons obviously! The bottom line as I see it, is that all songs were written by someone once...whether it is in 1500 or 2005 matters nothing. Interpretations of such songs will either appeal or not. In the end, who cares?
If you like something....Great!
If you don't....Great!
If you want to suggest that people might like to listen to something you've discovered......Great!
Telling other people that what they ought to enjoy for their listening pleasure is wrong......not so nice. (and ultimately pointless anyway)
I personally don't go much for Lizzies examples of "Good" music, that we all "Must" hear.
It all seems a bit bland and anodyne to me, But Hey! If she likes it fine. It's just that her tastes are obviously different to mine. Therefore, when sh goes on about a new artist, I normally avoid them with a barge pole. (Sort of reverse publicity!)
