This is a poem by WB Yeats, written 100 years ago but I think it has immense contemporary relevance. Anyway, I'm off work with man flu, and had nothing better to do. Yeats died in 1939, so his work is ...

WanHu Thanks, Piexe. I thought the text might live up to your playing, even if my "singing" might not:) +0

WanHu Thanks, Danny. I had a go at this a week ago, but wasn't happy with it. There's some fantastic, pop-friendly lines in the poem, but a lot of it isn't exactly easy to sing. If you hadn't posted the remix, I'd have forgotten about it. There's a lot of very beautiful poetry coming into the public domain and I think Wikiloops is a good way of keeping them alive. Also, I'm a cook, but I cook for lawyers, some of whom are international copyright specialists. I'll see if I can get some definitive advice for Dick. +0

WanHu Thanks, schwaglr. I was very glad of your rich and steady drumming. Between the complex timing structure of the poem and a piano which, if I'm not mistaken, was borderline "jazz", I was a bit out of my depth at times. +0

WanHu Thanks, AKchen. It's a shame Bertolt Brecht's work isn't out of copyright. There's a man in need of a Scottish interpretation.:) +0
