I'm always amused to see that rugby songs are never included in articles like this; but they're arguably the purest folk music of all: they have no known composers, they survive entirely by oral tradition, and their origins are losts in the mists of time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Paul Magnussen (talk • contribs) 21:08, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
- Do you have any reliable authority that thinks they are folk songs, or is it just a POV?--SabreBD (talk) 21:46, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
What else could they be? They're folk music by definition:
"Traditional music of unknown authorship transmitted orally" (Concise Oxford Dictionary, 2006)
- Weasel words? I'm sorry, Sabred, I don't mean to be rude, but I've no idea what you're talking about.
