Twelve comments

Most of the other contributors like to add a little something about the tune- the tunes origins, where you acquired it, or where you became familiar with the tune.

Originals, which this one appears to be, are actively scorned and discouraged. All due penance is encouraged, or membership can be remanded.

HAHA!

Number of tunes submitted: 667 :-D

And of that 667 there are those that were axed, some incorrectly, some in the early days when non-Irish things weren’t as tolerated as they are now, some were out and out duplications I reported myself. And then, there’s all those transcriptions in the ‘comments’… Who says I don’t luv yuh all? 8-)

I left this open as bait, like an old roll of fly paper… I was just waiting for someone to fly in… ;-) I’ve also been enjoying the growth in titles, and especially enjoyed "The Works of Marlow". Question is, which Marlowe, and what kind of works?

“My men like satyrs grazing on the lawns,
Shall with their goat-feet dance an antic hay.” ~ Christopher Marlowe

“I don’t like work, no one does, but I, like what is in the work, the chance to find yourself.” ~ Marlow (Joseph Conrad’s "Heart of Darkness")

"You know what he’ll do when he comes back? Beat my teeth out, then kick me in the stomach for mumbling." ~ Philip Marlowe (Raymond Chandler’s "The Big Sleep")

Now I know I’ve got a spare hair shirt round here somewhere, unless my dear wife has picked it up and thrown it in the wash?

Not bad in Mix, either!

Let’s try it with a few snaps…
