Love Steeleye Span you just have to sing along 🤗
Should of heard me lol!
Hubs says I'm in tune but the tone is all wrong so I'll never be a superstar, only around the house lol!
Fantastic songs though aren't they.. so many stories! Our friend that just passed used to do a traditional folk song where the cuckolded husband arrives home and a fight ensues.. I think there were 24 verses and occasionally he had to announce that he'd lost track and the chap had died twice
I do wonder if based on real events like the little sir hugh song, was there really a gruesome murder?
Also I think there's a bit in Macbeth where he's told something won't happen til the trees walk to somewhereorother. We passed a place had landslide on a hill around the time it was written.. I wonder if it could have been a reference to that event? Word would of got around via rumour..
Ancient stories and all lost maybe without music!
@dtuxcomp it's ok it won't hurt me to miss something
For you @alienlady
We can't have our good friends missing out now, can we @dtuxcomp? x
@dolly247 Thank you sis, I was working my way round to hunting it out but ATM as you can imagine I'm chasing myself up me own r's trying to keep up with everything can't leave out the laughs tho I keep chippin away at the jokes stash for the other thread but it's growing faster than I can post 'em
@dolly247 I didn't like that version of the song, great playing but it sounded like he was out of time with the vocals, so many people have covered it over the years, I prefer this version - Bates Motel - The Devil - but I used to go to their gigs and flail round like a nutter on the dance floor / beach, so maybe I'm biased The Levellers do a similar version, I did hear one years ago that was a lot slower as well.
I got your PM with the joke, great joke but again it wouldn't let me PM back, I''m starting to think it don't like me
Loved the Muppets vid, especially the gags at the end
Thankyou very much @dolly247 . My Parrot loved it , tried to sing along
I'm trying to think who sang the original song now
@alienlady It's a great video had me laughing for ages If your parrot manages to get the words down you must post a video of it
