Thread Name: Why do our songs last so long ?
Subject: Why do our songs last so long ?
So why does our folk music last as long as it does , I have being through my set list and most of the songs are at least 50 years old , some as old as 200 years,
Is it because of the way they are written ? or is it because we have such a passion for them to keep them alive that we just keep singing them.
With pop music[the good stuff] it has a life span of no more then 40 years or so , and then it's heard no more.
