Bulgarian Tune Used For Critics Group Song

Recommended Posts

Whilst idly sampling a database of ABC scripts yesterday, I came across the following:

X:45
T:Bulgarian Tune
F:Balkan
S:Ir-Trad/abc-users, Gerry Strong, 4/98
O:Balkan
M:2/4
L:1/8
Q:100
K:C
E|A^GAB|c>dcc|BAA^G|A3E|A^GAB|c>dcc|BAA^G
|A3c|:B>A B/2c/2d|G>A Gc|Bcde|c3 c|B>A B/2c/2d|G>A Gc|BAA^G|1A3c:|2A4
As far as I can tell it's the same tune as is used for 'The Lawyers Lamentation For Charing Cross' on the old

Critics Group LP 'Merry Progress To London'.

 

I only found a few other listings of the same tune, all of which repeated the Bulgarian theme. Is it really Bulgarian?

Knowing a little about how the Critics Group operated, I suppose it's possible they grabbed 'odd' tunes for some

of their songs, but it just seems a little too quirky...

 

Thoughts?
