Thread Name: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
Subject: RE: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
Personally, I don't think it was for money. He was a talented, opinionated individual who always had something to say, and said it.
Don't think in the seven minutes over the phone, he thought wow, I'm going to be rich. A Scotsman on the make is proverbial, but let's not get carried away here.
Anyway, listen to the Moving On Song and tell me THAT was written for money.
