Is it just me, or does the Ballad of Brave Sir Robin owe something to the song Tipperary Far Away?
Check out the videos below which should start at the points I find similar:
The Ballad of Brave Sir Robin (at about the 50 seconds point)
Tipperary Far Away by the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem (at about the 30 second point)
There's an obvious lyrical similarity, but I think the music is meant to sound similar as well. Once again, I think the British are getting a lot more out of this movie, than I did.
