GUEST,Lucius Oldest European Folk Song (112* d) RE: Oldest European Folk Song 22 Aug 02

If Europe looks to Greece as the boilerplate for its civilization, then the answer would have to be "Anthem to the Sun". Sorry, but I don't know the ancient Greek title, but it is not the Greatful Dead tune, I swear.

If you look to older European traditions, I guess that you'd have to consider un-notated pagan grunts, much in the style and spirit of tunes like "Louie-Louie".
