Irish tunes resembling kids’ songs
I had noticed that the first part of "Mouth of the Tobique" [ https://thesession.org/tunes/423 ] has a similar melody line to "The Big Ship Sails on The Ally-Ally-Oh", albeit a little enhanced.
Also, the first part of "Troy’s Wedding" [ https://thesession.org/tunes/2014 ] has a similarity to the chorus of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean" (bring back, bring back ….etc)
Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just the result of me snorting too much brake fluid? 🙂
