The mandolin in pop music
We don’t have enough to do in the office…
One of my colleagues who’s a ‘dance’ DJ (baseball cap turned backwards—you get the picture) and who dislikes traditional music was doing down the mandolin today. He has a Captain Corelli type idea of it.
I reminded him that the mandolin had featured in many pop hits over the years but I could only think of two off the top of my head: ‘Maggie May’ by Rod Stewart and ‘Losing My Religion’ by REM.
Can you think of any more?
