Thread Name: Why do our songs last so long ?
Subject: RE: Why do our songs last so long ?
Nellie - as a WASP I can only add a WASP's viewpoint to these threads. As an African-American I can only expect {and hope} that Azizi will continue to add an African-American viewpoint to her posts. There is no escaping the influence that Africans have had on "our" folk music.

So why do you think these songs have lasted so long?
