Amazing. Two songs nearly about the same thing. Was a good song. Cat Stevens I just like as a rule. Do listen to him every so often.

We will take you back to Ireland with a song that is about a young Irishman who makes his way to the US. Good story within the song. Is by the Wolfe Tones. Streets of New York.

One of favourite songs by the Wolfe Tones. The Foggy Dew. You probably heard it before.

Leave you with a classic by the Wolfe Tones. The story before the song tells you what actually happened. He was all but dead already. In a hospital bed. They took him from his bed. Tied him to a chair. Executed him.

Streets of New York is great. It's one of those songs you can't just have playing in the background, you've got to sit down and really listen, give it your full attention, here it's story.
Ah, yes, the Foggy Dew. I'm familiar with this one. I actually find it rather catchy. I loved the old photographs in the video. The photo of the Irish men on their way to an English jail really struck me, for some reason.
Last one is very sad, as a lot of tis country's history is. Crazy things that happened in those days. I found some of the YouTube comments a little rude!
Ever heard this version of the Foggy Dew? Again, I could do sans rock, but this version has a lot of energy. But it would be nice with just the other instruments.

And on a lighter note...

I adore this set (Ladies Cup of Tea/Basket of Oysters/Kerry Lassie) and as you can probably tell, I love the pipes. Fiddle will always be my favourite, though. So here are some lovely 19th century reels for ya.

You certainly love your pipe music. Good version of The Foggy Dew too. Bit quicker. Second song is keeping with Irish tradition. Ancient times a bard would tell a story. That is what our singers do in songs to this day.

You ever hear an Elvis song done out in Tradition Irish style? You are just about to. Band never had many hits at all. Ask anybody and the would only name this one song. Lick The Tins. Can't help fallen in love. Amazing version.

Simple Minds. A classic if ever there was one. Belfast Child. Haunting in some ways.

Going to leave you with the haka. This is done by Maori Rugby teams before matches. They are calling down dead ancestors to guide them into battle. New Zealand are famous for it.

Interesting version of Can't Help Falling in Love. I like it
I really like Belfast Child. It really is haunting.
I remember seeing the haka once in a movie that was shown to my class at school. My classmates seemed to find it funny, while was pretty interested by it.
And now to add to this variety of music... How could I forget this one? I became obsessed with it a few years ago.

Now something that isn't pipes.  :laugh3: These are some talented young fiddlers.

Probably be of no surprise to you to hear I have a few Native American CDs here. A friend sent me a few. One was the annual tribal Pow Wow. Sort of like a dance off between the tribes. Only with chanting and the likes. It was ruined with some bloke who was the MC for the event talking during the whole thing. The wood flute is a beautiful instrument with an amazing sound. Yes. I do have one here too. Is a shop here were you can buy all these cultural things from the various cultures. That music I always find appealing.

No idea if you ever heard of Enigma? They like to fuse cultural music with chart music. You get these odd mixtures of sounds. It can be relaxing at night. Lights out and their slowest songs on.

Will include a second one by Enigma. We sure like all sorts of music.

Last band for the night might surprise you. There is something about them that I have always liked. I know people imagine them to be a band that females only love. Their music is good. Always has been. This song just has a summer feel about it.

 Never heard of Enigma. Their music sounds almost mystical, I think. Videos are quite a visual, too.
The second one is nice, too. I agree it has a "summer feel".
I'll leave you with these for now.

Now, let's end with laugh! You're not going to believe what I just posted. I'm almost certain you've heard this before. Here it goes...  :laugh3:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzYzVMcgWhg
No, I don't actually listen to this on a regular basis or take it seriously.  :laugh3:

Do I begin with Father Ted? Whole Eurovision thing. We had won it so many times in a row we simply couldn't afford to host it. So what did we do? We sent the worst song we could find. That actually happened. Father Ted turned into an episode. Is based around fact. Other two songs were nice as well. Easy on the auld ears for a Sunday morning. Now I will add a clip to begin with. Not sure if you saw the sitcom ' one foot in the grave '? Victor. He is one amusing bloke. Sort of dry humour. But one clip I love to share about. Always has me laughing.

Next one is a prank phone call made by a kid. Part of some radio show. Wait until you hear her. This will start your day off with a bit of a laugh.

Only two for now. No music this time. Trying something a little different.

 I didn't know that episode was based around fact! Ha! I also heard Ireland actually considered using "My Lovely Horse" for the Eurovision contest this year. Should've gone through with it!  :laugh3:
Oh, my. Poor Nippy. I guess I would be pretty disappointed, too, if I found out the dog I was getting was a dead dog.
I've heard this prank call before. Precocious kid! But Becky and I have similarities- I love making prank calls!  :laugh3: I remember once when I was about 6 or 7 years old, my mother took me to work with her. While she was sitting at her desk working, I was in the next room hiding under a vacant desk with her telephone, making prank calls. When I ran out of people to call whose numbers I already knew, I started looking for phone numbers in magazines and in advertisements and calling them. It stopped when I called my mother's friend, who knew it was me and somehow my mother found out because of her and then I was in trouble. Also, I'm notorious for prank calling 1-800-GET-THIN.
Now, hold on, let me look around for something funny to sow you...
Here we go.
This is from the show Keeping Up Appearances. I love this show. It is about a woman who thinks that everyone thinks she is rich, refined, and proper, and goes over the top to show it, but really people find her extremely annoying and her extended family are the equal of "hillbillies", but in England.

next two are from the film My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

I love Keeping up Appearances. Always watched it. My mother has it as her favourite sitcom ever. Was always on in this house. I was always a big Only Fools and Horses fan. Have the box set with every episode. As for prank calls. One we used to love to do. Need about five or six people. Simple ring up a number. Same number each time. Every caller says ' will you tell John ' and then add something to tell John. Like the party starts at nine. Next caller would ask to tell John the match tomorrow is called off. Get five of your six to leave messages for John. Then the last caller simply rings up and says ' this is John, are there any messages for me '. By this stage the person on the phone is swearing all sorts at all. But we did once get some old dear who actually gave our John the list of messages. Bless her.

Going to go back to music for a while. Old band at this stage. Cry before Dawn. Never really made it that big. One hit wonder. But a great hit at that.

Now we hop over to Scotland. Band called Big Country. Amazing song called Chance.

Oh! That's it. I going to try that prank call! Now, where will I find five or six people that will agree to this?
Really like the first one. It has a good beat.
Chance is great, too.
I love swapping song. This is fun. :-)
Here is another one for you from the book I told you about. The author has a lot of beautiful poetry/songs she wrote incorporated into her books and some fans like to put them to music. This one is called the Lay of Ardina and Ardhor and it is my favourite poem by her. I actually recited it at school for a poetry night we had. Listening to it put to music helped so much in memorising. (I did terribly. I was horribly nervous and when it was my turn I mumbled through it as quickly as I could and people were leaning in trying to hear me.) I know it's long, so you don't have to listen to the whole thing if you don't feel like it.
