Thread Name: Why do our songs last so long ?
Subject: RE: Why do our songs last so long ?
Part of the reason is that people are over-exposed to the pop songs, on radio, etc., whereas for most people, the only time they hear folk music is when they attend a live performance. So while a performer may be sick of a song like Black Velvet Band, in the general public there are many people who have never heard it, and if they do happen to hear it, they'll love it ... (go, figger) ...
