It’s Songs Like This…

…that make me wish I could sing. I usually hate having tunes stuck in my head ‘cause, lets face it, the catchy ones are generally awful. Raglan Road’s the exception to the rule, though. I’ve had it swirling around in there for about a week now and I really don’t mind one little bit ‘cause it’s just so lovely. The version I’m posting here is by Sinead O’Connor, who I’ve never really been the biggest fan of but who has been growing on me somewhat in my auld age. Neither have I ever been too fond of Paddy Kavanagh, whose poem it’s based on.  Still, this is truly beautiful. I could listen to it all day long, even if it does always remind me of funerals.

This is why I so love Ireland, Roisin. And Davy Spillane on the pipes... I go to bed in a better mood, and I will listen to it again tomorrow. Thank you.

Sorry to hog your blog, Roisin, but I have to say thank you again. Simple and beautiful.

No worries JJ. I wasn't really sure why I was posting it 'cause I didn't really think anyone would be too interested, so I'm glad you liked it.

As I said to JJ there, I was a bit unsure about posting this 'cause usually when I post music videos nobody seems to watch them. So thanks and I glad you liked it! I don't know why but even though I think of this as a sad song it always makes me happy :)

p.s Ruthie, I love the new studio blog. Hope all is going well with it!
