Who wrote the songs?
Dr. Jim says that Dr. Jane those songs
by Lee Gold

On the last Saturday of October, 2021, I got an email from an old fannish acquaintance triggered by a recent Pegasus Award -- Best Classic Filk Song -- to “Nessie, Come Up” by Dr. Jane Robinson. The fannish acquaintance asked if this award should have gone not to “Dr. Jane Robinson” but to “Dr. Jim Robinson.”

I sighed and wrote a somewhat complex reply, with a BCC to Dr. Jim. And then I called in Barry to proofread my email before hitting SEND. Here’s what I emailed.

When I published Dr. Jane's Songs (2012), I asked Dr. Jim Robinson what the title should be.

He said, "Jane wrote the songs. Nowadays I'm a man, and I still sing these songs, but I don't write songs anymore. I'm not the person who wrote those songs. Title the songbook 'Dr. Jane's Songs.'"

So that's what I titled the songbook.

For that reason, I wouldn't consider it accurate to "update" the songbook to being by "Dr. James Robinson."
