The House Guest
Miranda sighed – 'home sweet home' after six months working in Rome, teaching English to young Italians. She turned the key. She was so excited. She was sure that her wonderful, kind-hearted friend, Pam – the person she had shared her flat with for years – was in. She had allowed Pam to live in the flat with her because she knew that her personal possessions would be respected and that she didn't need to agree on any house rules.
Miranda entered the hallway quietly – she really wanted to surprise Pam. But as she walked in, a terrible smell of unwashed dishes and rubbish hit her. Horror filled her as she looked around her: the parquet floor had dark stains all over it and a hole; the hand-carved wooden coffee table from Morocco had been painted green. To make matters worse, she could also smell cigarette smoke. This was a smoke-free house! “Pam!” she cried.
Just then, she heard heavy footsteps coming down the stairs. To her horror, she looked up to see a huge, unshaven man wearing a dirty t-shirt and a pair of underpants. Miranda felt sick; it was obvious her home had been taken over by some kind of trespasser or squatter. The man seemed relaxed. “Hello,” he yawned. “I'm Miles”. “My flat! What have you done to my flat? And who are you?” she asked. “You must be Miranda. You've been in Italy, haven't you? Wow! Pam didn't tell me what a beautiful flatmate she had,” he answered, staring at her. “Don't look at me like that! I don't even know you. Are you responsible for this?” she said accusingly, pointing at the green coffee table. “I thought the table looked a little boring, so I used my artistic talents to brighten it up a little” he responded. Miranda felt her blood begin to boil with anger.
Just then, Pam walked in with a bag of shopping. Seeing Miranda, she exclaimed, “Oh, good! You've met Miles. It's great to see you! I've got so much to tell you.” “Yes, you do!” replied Miranda in an annoyed voice. “What has happened to my flat? ” she cried, looking around the room. Pam felt surprised by Miranda's reaction. “But you don't have any house rules, remember? And don't worry about the mess. We'll tidy up later. Miles is just a little untidy, aren't you, my love?” she said, going over to kiss him. Miles laughed. “Yes, perhaps. I'm not into rules or organisation. Be free, man! We've all got to make a stand against the establishment...” He yawned, adding, “Listen, it was a late night last night; I'm going to go back to bed for a few hours. See you later.”
“This is not 'the establishment'! This is my home! And, from now on, I DO have rules!” shouted Miranda, as he disappeared up the stairs. Pam was famous for her awful boyfriends, but Miranda thought she had gone too far this time. “Pam, I think we need to have a serious talk about house guests and house rules.”

The term "folk song" has been current for over a hundred years, but there is still a good deal of disagreement as to what it actually means. The definition provided by the International Folk Music Council states that folk music is the music of ordinary people, which is passed on from person to person by being listened to rather than learned from the printed page. Other factors that help shape a folk song include: continuity (many performances over a number of years); variation (changes in words and melodies either through artistic interpretation or failure of memory); and selection (the acceptance of a song by the community in which it evolves).
When songs have been subjected to these processes their origin is usually impossible to trace. For instance, if a farm worker were to make up a song and sing it to a-couple of friends who like it and memorize it, possibly when the friends come to sing it themselves one of them might forget some of the words and make up new ones to fill the gap, while" the other, perhaps more artistic, might add a few decorative touches to the tune and improve a couple of lines of text. If this happened a few times there would be many different versions, the song's original composer would be forgotten, and the song would become common property. This constant reshaping and re-creation is the essence of folk music. Consequently, modern popular songs and other published music, even though widely sung by people who are not professional musicians, are not considered folk music. The music and words have been set by a printed or recorded source, limiting scope for further artistic creation. These songs' origins cannot be disguised and therefore they belong primarily to the composer and not to a community.
The ideal situation for the creation of folk music is an isolated rural community. In such a setting folk songs and dances have a special purpose at every stage in a person's life, from childhood to death. Epic tales of heroic deeds, seasonal songs relating to calendar events, and occupational songs are also likely to be sung.
