melodeonboy 'Owned' songs (58* d) RE: 'Owned' songs 20 Jan 18

I think we can get a bit precious about this. In general, I just sing what I want to sing. Sometimes I sing something that someone else was going to sing, and sometimes someone else sings something that I was going to sing. I don't find that a problem.
I do make two exceptions:
1. If the writer of the song is present, I ask them if they're intending to do it before singing it.
2. If there is a novice in the room who has just started learning songs, and I am aware that they may only know two or three songs, I would avoid those songs.
When someone else sings a song that I often sing, I find it interesting to hear their version, and have no negativity towards it.
