Gordon Jackson Origins: Let No Man Steal Your Time / Thyme (92* d) RE: Origins: Let No Man Steal Your Time / Thyme 21 Mar 18

Jim, I think you're spot on. When I sing I like to feel a certain amount of empathy with the narrator, and a feeling of identification with the song's context, which includes some knowledge of its provenance. For me, it's a practical, not an academic, exercise.

I remember Christy Moore once saying pretty much the same thing in an interview - I think he referred to it as 'getting right inside the song' or something similar.
