Máire Brennan's daughter has just released her first album. Mother and daughter were on the radio here singing live in the studio. Her daughter has that same haunting voice. Suppose if you come from that family you are always bound for a musical life. They all still sing in their father's pub. Which I think is amazing. Good for the locals to hear some of the best singers the Country ever had.

Amusing story for you. Not sure if you are aware of the Orange order in the North of Ireland? They hate Irish people and want to be part of the UK. One Saturday a few years back they got brave and imagined they could come down to Dublin and march through our main town. Past the GPO which is the main building from the 1916 Rising. It erupted in seconds. Work was going on around the area the week before. So the workers just happened to leave all the rubble out in the open. They claimed it wasn't left there on purpose. First thing used to toss at the Orange Order. Irish police told them to get back on their buses and go home. That they could not protect them. Their claim was they were marching in protest against something the British government had done. Confusing? Why come down here to march against the British government. Go to the UK and do your protesting. They openly admit to hating the Irish. What did they expect when they came down here? Nice welcome from us.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5IixlueszU    This is what happened. Not just people from Dublin. People from all over Ireland turned out to stop them marching. We are really a nice bunch of people. Until these idiots want to march through our home town. Little taste of Dublin for you.

As you know there are various types of ballads. I admit I go in for some of the stronger ones as well. I am Irish. Republican views. Just how I was raised. Relatives in the North of Ireland. Have visited the place a few times. But the ballads you would hear in Belfast and the likes can be a bit different. Wanting the British army out of the North. I know things have changed a bit over the past few years. For the better. But tensions still exist. Favourite sing a long ballad is amusing in some ways. 100% anti British.

Christy Moore is an amazing singer too. He is well known for his drinking of illegal substances and his support of what goes on in the North of Ireland.

Guess this a post about the things that certain people like to hide away. They only want you to see the green and pleasant side of Ireland. When so much more is going on.

Don't mean to interfere in the enjoyable songfest, even with no Gaelic knowledge. Some scenery is so beautiful.

Kodaline reminds me of Simon and Garfunkel here and Cat Stevens is big in Harold and Maude, a favorite movie.

Oh, goodness! I am aware of the Orange Order and their marches. I did not know they came over to Dublin a few years ago. Hmm, seems to me like something fishy was up. I find it funny that all that chaos was happening and yet people were standing around watching and taking video! Those are some daring folks.
Nice ballads. Strong lyrics. I've never heard these before.
I was following how things were going on July 12th with the Orange Order marches up north. Seems that this year was relatively peaceful. Here's one for you.

I read that way back when this song was also sung when a bride came to her husband's home for the first time.

You see that green box under the posts? Has a sort of + sign on it? If you click that you will see the reply option on the newer forum. Took me a while to work it out to begin with. As for your song. If you go to my profile page you will see the lyrics to that exact song posted on my profile wall. Great minds think alike. Sinead O Connor does a great version of the song. Love her voice. Powerful.

As for the Orange Order? Pack of idiots. They want to march through Catholic towns to celebrate the killing of Catholics. That is what it is all about. Out dated load of rubbish and they dress like fools. They don't like us. We don't like them. The video showed the result of them trying to step foot in Dublin.

Tinam feel free to post away and join if you wish. Just swapping songs and Traditions of old.

Apart from Irish music I swing towards late 70's punk music. Mohawk hairstyle most summers for years. Just love the whole image. Is a few pictures in the gallery here on the site taken over the past few years. Most is just a shaved head. Mohawk one is in there somewhere. Also side towards Ska music. Will leave an example of both. Punk first.

Now for some ska music. Easy on the ears.

I just checked out you wall and saw the lyrics there. Yes, great minds do think alike. ;-) And it is definitely party time with that music! This is stuff you can chill with. You really do listen to all sorts of things, don't you?
I used to love this song when I was a tiny little girl. I still do. It's one of my mother's favourites as well. I remember jumping around to this when I was seven years old while a man sang and played it on his guitar at a street fair. When he was done, he commented about how excited I seemed. Good times...  :laugh3:

I guess with myself if the bands are good and they write their own music, no matter what sort of music it is, I will always give it a go. I have 2 MP3 players. That is a lot of songs. The playlists are a right mixture. Lot of traditional on them both. Trad Rock is something I like too. Like the Dropkick Murphys. That sort of music. Irish / American. Have all their albums. The 1980's I liked because I was into keyboard music. But the bands had to be good. That is were I will begin this morning. Is one song that has stood the test of time. Life in a Northern town by the Dream Academy. Amazing song. Was their only hit. Just something about the song. The video is good too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkCcDRzcZrM

Another great band from the 80's were Talk Talk. There was just something different about them. Song that stands out is ' Life what you make it '. One of a number of hits they had.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvMoRVrqx_I

Then we had China Crisis. Not that many hits. But again they had one song that stood out amongst all other songs. Still played on the radio these days.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj20LKdg8-8

Deacon Blue were another amazing band to come along. Hard not to like their songs. One became bigger than all the rest and sort of was the song people remember them for.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHTI31XuQxk

Will leave it at that for now. Like getting in a time machine and going back in time. Will be honest and admit that some music in the 80's was tacky music. Maybe that was why I went for the less popular bands. As they were all gone within a year or two. I love to mix my music up. Which you would have guessed by now.  :laugh3:

Ha! I certainly did guess.  :P Yes, 80's music (and movies!) are notorious for being corny, but I like these. I actually really like Wishful Thinking. Do you have any songs you like to listen to at night? Ones that help you sleep? These are mine.
This one I used as a lullaby in one of my short stories and then it grew on me.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpv5DQdgPDk
This one comes from one of my favourite books. The woman singing it put it to music and added two extras verses to go with the first two. i think it sounds great with good quality headphones.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QA2sGWogE0
You've probably heard this one before. I only recently started to like it. The group my sister used to be in did a version of this.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9B3_of9CY24
And last, but not least. I love this one. It's actually from a Disney movie, but it reminds me of my mother and I back when I was little. The scene in the movie it's in is adorably sweet.

A nice mixture of night time music there. I am gathering your family where originally from Donegal? Seems to be the base for most of the songs. I tend to listen to talk radio at night these days. Though that was not always the case. Singer that it may surprise you to hear that I like is Andrea Bocelli. My mother always had a love of his music. I used to download all his albums for her. I got so used to listening to him that I began to like his music. Have eight of his albums on my MP3 player. Find me a better voice in the world. Find the man amazing. I can relax to his music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcrfvP11Hbo

Not sure if you ever heard of David Gray? Welsh born. Had a lot of flops as far as music goes. Then he released ' White Ladder ' and it looked like another flop. Irish people loved his music and the album topped our charts. Saved his career. Took a year for the same album to even make the UK charts. Once it did it went to number 1. Every song on the album is great. Irish people knew this early on. In the UK it was fabricated bands and the winners of reality shows topping the charts. We like real music here in Ireland. Video for the first song I love. Him walking along the street singing to his own song. Smart idea for a video. On the album it is just the song without him singing over it. This was the album I slept to nightly for over a year. Will let you hear 2 of his songs. He is a great singer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq-jLjCVx_Q

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zN4_7hq77g

You want some great night time listening? War of the worlds. I have the original 1938 version of the radio recording. But the later version became the more popular version. It comes with its great songs too. Forever Autumn. Singer used to be the lead singer with the Mood Blues. Justin Hayward. Sure we all know Night's in white Satin. Was a classic song. That was his voice on vocals too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsCdlX-5UjE

There was a time I would listen to Charlotte Church at night. She was a young kid who broke through singing opera and other songs that needed a good voice. She ruined her career later on by trying to sing pop and rock music. This first song I have heard at many a funeral. Seems to used a lot at funerals. Will follow that up with her version of a well known Irish ballad.

 This is all good night time music. And, yes, Donegal would be correct. I also happen to love Donegal-style music. I recognise that first one. Whenever my mother hears that song she goes on about how she just couldn't stand it while she was pregnant with me! I have no idea why. I'm familiar with Andrea Bocelli. I watched a concert of his once on television with my grandmother and aunt. Not heard of David Gray. He does have a good voice. And, of course, Danny Boy. ;-) I had a weird teacher a few years back who liked to torture a student named Daniel with it!  :laugh3:

Two more for ya. First one is from the movie Benny and Joon. It reminds me of a trip I went on up the coast, just my mother and I, a year ago to this tiny little town by a bay called Baywood Park. I loved that trip. It was so pretty there. Might go again in the fall.

I know the first song well. Good to see it means something to somebody.  :laugh3: They were seen as a bit of laughing stock over this side of the world. Just the songs they sang. Their whole image as well. I like the sound of the second song. Is new to me. Like the sound of it. Enough to click on another one of his songs.

Now an artist who died, came back to life and died for real a few weeks later. It was odd. There was a news report that he died whilst out swimming. But then he turned up alive up and well. Still alive. The big twist was a few weeks later he died whilst swimming. It was kind of freaky in a way. But the song in question was written by Leonard Cohen. Another singer I like. But I picked the later version of the song by Jeff Buckley.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIF4_Sm-rgQ

The second song is just for you. I am sure it will have great meaning to you. Try and hold in the tears.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq2Dc73-xm0

Let you do a bit of a Jig for the final song

I didn't know they were a laughing stock. Hahaha! Funny.  :laugh3:
Yes, that seems to happen a lot with musical artists. Odd...
My Heart is in Ireland is beautiful. It definitely has meaning to me. Thank you for sharing it, I think it'll be one of my new favourites now. :-)
And unfortunately the internet here is being ridiculously slow, so I was only able to listen to 17 seconds of the last song.  Guess I'll have to try again later.
Now, I have some super relaxing selections for you...
Ever listen to Jack Johnson? His voice is very soothing. Also love his song Banana Pancakes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u57d4_b_YgI
These are by Adam Young, AKA Sky Sailing. I love his music from the early days.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PkzsMak6P8
Unfortunately, I can't seem to get to this third song I'm posting because the internet is so slow. I'll try to post it later. Ach, it took me forever to type this. Sorry.

That is a very nice song. The first one. Sounds like a good singer. Relaxing as well. Nice second song too. Peaceful.

Think the whole net crashed earlier. Nothing would open for me at all either. I mean nothing at all. So I went off and watched a bit of MMA. Love my fighting. Is a good sport. Now that that is over it is back to the music. I will go back to Kodaline. Just love their music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LE7KVkm_YFU

Is the night here. Will keep it slow. Anybody reading this thread will think we are posting love songs to each other.  :laugh3:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwpMEbgC7DA

Be interested to hear what you make these singers. Not everybody would be into them. As I said before I like people who write their own songs and can play an instrument. But they are good songs as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iX-QaNzd-0Y

Will finish my night off with the man in black. Have to love the man singing.

I really like the one by Kodaline. Certainly not the last time I'll listen to that. Last one is really nice, too. Powerful.
"Anybody reading this thread will think we are posting love songs to each other."- Hahaha! That made me laugh.  :laugh3:
Well, now that things are back to normal with the internet, here is the song I was going to post earlier. :-)

You have a good taste in music. If I do say so myself. The next one I am going to pick is odd for me. An old friend off the net years ago sent me a CD. Now at first I was baffled at the choice of CD. But I began to listen more. The more I listened the more the music grew on me. Not my normal type of music by far. Think she had one album out and that was it for her. Don't be surprised at this choice. More pop than anything else. But she does write her own songs. The more you hear of her the more she grows on you.
