This afternoon I was in a Starbucks killing a little time before
collection a child from school and suddenly realized I was hearing The
Redesdale Hornpipe over the sound system under a lot of other arranged
music. Checking the screen on which the shop shows what is playing I saw
it was a Simon and Garfunkel track called "Fakin' It". I've just dug
around a bit and found this Youtube video featuring it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ft7mUK29GY8 . It comes in around 2.03 and
is only about 12 seconds.
It would be interesting to know if they ever credited the tune - though
given Paul Simon's well know plagerism of Martin Carthy's "SCarborough
Fair" perhaps he would call it "The Underhand".........
