Subject: RE: Folksongs that will pass for 'Pop'
I find that John Gorka's songs (well at least the ones I know) lend themselves to a bit heavy arrangement. The Move did it with Paxton's "The Last Thing On My Mind" in 1968, turning it into an 8 minute, 12-string & harmony-laded masterpiece. But usually, I'm into the vice-versa, turning pop into folk!
