Jim Carroll recording search help - Dido, Bendigo (53* d) RE: recording search help - Dido, Bendigo 28 May 20


I'm pretty sure there were broadsides about it, which indicates there were folk songs
According to Defoe, 'Goodnight' songs were so-called because of the spectators calling the word out gleefully as the noose tightened around the victim's neck
Society no longer accepts that level of inhumanity - in my opinion - neither should its songs
Maybe we should popularise such songs as 'Sale of a Wife' again - why not ?
