Continuing with our ‘Members Chosen Word/Theme’ task and each week where we vote on our favourite pickings, we will take a guess at who suggested the current word/theme.

Chosen Theme.png

This round we are looking for Folk Songs, please nominate songs you deem as Folk Songs

Folk Songs.png


Please post a link for each nomination, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.


Staying in the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.


Duplicates are more than welcome, but they won't be included when we take the vote

To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.


20 songs are the maximum, but if you don't have 20, anything less is fine.

Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs

Last day for nominations is
Mon 22nd February

Hmm, I'm not sure if it's all PURE folk music. Sometimes it sounds a bit too rock or too pop or too psych or too chanson or too this or too that.
But hey, I'm trying.

I'll pass this tour....Folk isn't the music we listen here so I cannot compete.... But I'd be happy to listen and vote, if I may.

Please do! I love that you have joined us.

I wasn't sure how this round would work for me because I'm not familiar with many folk songs and even then, I never know if it's folk or something else.

I've been completely overwhelmed by this one because I've discovered so many fantastic songs and I'm looking forward to seeing what others come up with.

I guess First Aid Kit is a good example of modern folk music.
But I'm totally kicking myself for not including this folk song with a twist:
I've been completely overwhelmed by this one because I've discovered so many fantastic songs
Not to mention the many almost-folk songs that I couldn't use for this theme.

:eek::eek::eek: - I love it!

There was another site where it listed 12 of the darkest and shocking folk songs, I was tempted...


When I was digging around, this song popped up and I kinda wanted to include it but thought it wasn't right, not that I know what it is, only that it took me back to my own childhood.



Not to mention the many almost-folk songs that I couldn't use for this theme.

One of us is lying, but who is it?

And btw, what happened to your TV series top 10?

I never lie. Well, only white lies. And lies of necessity. And lies of kindness. And to save my ass. Sometimes to save someone else's ass. But otherwise, I never lie.

Top 10 series will be back, as will Top 5 songs. But when things at work slow down. I work up to 12 hours a day and collapse when I get home. I expect things to go back to normal in a couple of weeks.

I've struggled a bit trying to decide ... is this a folk song or not? ... but, I didn't want to miss out on this round, so I've done my best.
