bassen Lyr Req: At the Codfish Ball (25) RE: The Cod Fish Ball 21 Oct 98

Thanks Joe for a prompt and efficient reply. I guess cod fishing wasn't as glamorous as whaling - hence the relative dearth of songs on the subject. On the other hand, we want to profile the traditional music of the countries where salt cod became a staple diet - so it doesn't matter that they didn't sing about cod, as long as they ate it. Brude O. - If you work out the chorus, I'll work on the verses... Parodies will abound of course- what else can you expect in a country where cod fish balls in cream sauce are a staple diet? Lutefisk is usually made from stokkfisk but in this part of Norway it's also made from klippfisk: klippfisk is salted, dried cod - stokkfisk is unsalted dried cod. Aren't you glad you know that now?
