The Song of the Loom tells the story of the hoary tradition of textile weaving in south India from the perspective of the weavers. It is a narrative from below, mediated through the author's interaction with the weavers and more specially, with their wives, for over two decades. The author stayed with weaving communities, participated in their cultural and religious festivals and listened to their many songs. These oral traditions relate to every facet of their lives--their struggles at the loom, their despair with the younger generation which is forsaking a traditional way of life and their desperate clinging to traditions and memories. The Song of the Loom is the author's token of gratitude to this community.

Originally published in 1983. Song has always been a natural way to record everyday experiences – an expression of celebration, commiseration, complaint and protest. This innovative book is a study of popular and working-class song combining several approaches to the subject. It is a history of working-class song in Britain which concentrates not simply on the songs and the singers but attempts to locate such song in its cultural context and apply principles of literary criticism to this essentially oral medium. It triggered controversy: some critics castigated its Marxist approach, others enthused that ‘such unabashed partisanship amply reveals the outstanding characteristic of Watson's book’. The author discusses the way in which the popular song, from Victorian times onwards, has been forced by the entertainment industry out of its roots in popular culture, to become a blander form of art with minimal critical potential. The book ends by considering the possibilities for a continued flourishing of a genuine popular song culture in an electronic age. It has become a standard title in bibliographies and curricula. Much has changed since 1983, not least in music; but this then innovative book still has a lot to say about popular song in its social and historical context.
