Thread Name: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Subject: RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
'"The Coolin" is based on a favorite Irish love song. The word "coolin" refers to the little curl grown by young women at the neck line. Thus, "little curl" or "coolin", came to mean one's sweetheart. A lifted, lilting compound triple-meter helps to create a pastoral scene while gentle harmonic and chromatic inflections and tone painting create a sonic image of two lovers tenderly speaking.'
