Thread Name: Correct location for historical song?
Subject: Correct location for historical song?
I have composed, performed and won favour with a recent song. I have several requests from others to use it. I have however discovered a flaw in my 'facts' regarding the location of the activities described, a matter of maybe 30miles of coast which is not much in global terms. Should I plough on, hoping historians present turn I blind eye? If anyone can cite other examples of incorrect history in well know songs it would make me less uncomfortable pressing on. A rewrite is not possible as it won't scan.
