I'm trying to make a playlist on my phone about the best folk songs ever written. Unfortunately i could only remember a few. Dylan's Blowin in the Wind, The times they are a changin, Like a Rolling stone....Simon and Garfunkel's classics....a few songs from CSN...John Denver....Peter, Paul and Mary....

Please help me out. Thanks.

TIP: Hindi komo acoustic, folk song na. Pop songs pa rin yan. Folk songs are traditionally passed on by mouth, hence the changes in the lyrics and variations in melodies. Nobody knows who wrote the song. Meron naman written folk songs, especially during the revival noong 60's.

Anyway, try these:

PETE SEEGER







WOODY GUTHRIE

BOB DYLAN
she knows :)







PM me if you're interested I can link you to an enormous resource of Dylan materials. :D

Dig deeper bro, folk songs are not just acoustic love songs. :D

Thanks for the tip. Kindly tell me why the musicians i mentioned (apart from Bod Dylan), CSN, Simon & Garfunkel, Peter, Paul and Mary and John Denver, could not be classified as folk song artists?

They did folk songs bro.

"Tom Dooley" is an old North Carolina folk song based on the 1866 murder of a woman named Laura Foster in Wilkes County, North Carolina." Wiki hehe.

To my understanding, there is acoustic folk such as the trademark of Peter, Paul and Mary, Folk Country by John Denver, Folk Rock by CSNY and Simon and Garfunkel....

If we have to dig deeper and expand a little, traditional folk genre popularized by the likes of Bob Dylan has evolved.

I did not say they are not. PP&M recorded folk songs until they covered more recent materials during their time. The artists you listed most probably sang folk songs in folk clubs and hootenannies, maybe even together during jams. I don't know.

Maybe what I'm trying to say is, we got used to believing that soft acoustic love songs etc, ang tawag natin madalas ay folk songs, especially because the labels on the cassette and CD jackets say they're folk songs.

Hey I'm no expert dre. Binabasa ko lang sa lib yan back in college. I just like really old songs not everybody knows about.

I always thought nursery rhymes are folk songs, especially if the writer of the song is unknown.
