Okay, give your opinion on this. I know this could go in IMHO too but it’s basically about a song tune so here it is. If a mod thinks it should be moved, I have no problem.
But my roomate and I are arguing over this tune. He was singing it and I said “Singing Christmas songs this early?” He then went on to say that it may be a Christmas song but it originally was a song tune called Greensleeves that was completely unrelated to Christmas.
I looked this up then, not realizing it, and found he was right. So I said to him that, "Yeah, you’re right, but I think most, if you sang that tune around them, would probably identify it as the popular Christmas song “What Child is This”. He disagreed and said that since he had never heard the Christmas version that he thinks more would identify it as Greensleeves.
Well, obviously there’s not really any way to find out which is right but I thought, at the very least, I’d make a topic and ask you all what you think. Do you think that more people would know that as “What Child is This?” or would know that as the original tune “Greensleeves”?
Here is the tune of the song by the way.
