Óige - The Flower of Magherallyo
(Cara Dillon)

Maranna McCloskey - The Gem of the Roe
Found this, while I was looking for the faster version of “The Flower of Magherallyo” that she did on the other Óige album “Bang On”. I nowadays prefer the voice of Maranna McCloskey from that of Cara Dillon.

Kathleen MacInnes - A Mhic Iain Ic Sheumais
This had been our Pan-European language, folks.

Fiddler's Green - A bottle a day
The other German “Irish Folk band”... Am I erring, or are they all becoming too loud?

Paddy goes to Holyhead - Johnny Went To The War
Reminds me of something completely different:
Johnny's gone in the war.

And then I had to watch the “5 golden buzzers of 2018”...
You know (you don't).., I remember this kind of „show“ from German Television. It has been a while and contributes to my not wanting any TV at home. But the British and American flavors are worth being watched. Okay. Occasionally, that is.

Michael. TV-less since 1992.

I posted this here some time ago, but I wanted to share it again, since it's a great video and song.

This is a response to #4057
Guru Guru Oxymoron

I found for "Elektrolurch" only 1 electric bicycle, else the song-title by Guru Guru and other references to the group. This is such a nice pseudonym that somebody should grab it quickly...

The song that I whistled yesterday and all day long, while in the trees, removing underdeveloped, tiny apples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt7kEqWlSyc

While I am at it: Black Water (add this automatically to every reference to the Doobie Brothers).

I did not pay attention and this came up, while I was typing my nth addition to this post:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0njSOZ5M3w

While Billy and Steve are well represented, I find Ronnie still missing...

i was hoping to bring out the aspect of instant composition - as opposed to (or at least extending the concept of) improvisation.

as far as german bands from that era are concerned, guru guru was never my cup of tea.
this was (is), and another fine example of instant composition:
CAN - Vitamin C
(in all fairness, they applied quite a bit of post-production to their studio albums, but the concept is there nevertheless)
or this:
Talk Talk - I Believe In You
(Mark Hollis has been talking about how they made this and the next, last, talk talk album, and that is how they did it: instant composition)

btw, do i remember correctly you live in the Bretagne?
i once spent a few summer weeks there and have very fond memories of it.
a youth hostel in a many-centuries-old castle-like farm house with metre-thick grey stone walls and an open fireplace. untended to, but that just made it more romantic... the sea... endless hedges of mure...

Ben.., It is Normandy, but a close call, nevertheless.

Normandy is like the more frugally unequipped version of Bretagne. What you might call picturesque are simple nuisances for us
Quote:

Yep. Make that ruins in urgent need of renovation

Quote:
with metre-thick grey stone walls
Yep. Impossible to heat in winter.
Quote:
and an open fireplace
.
... Yep. Use it and you freeze from behind, close the wall and those living in the new bungalows with central heating cry bitter tears because YOU destroy the ambience...
Quote:
but that just made it more romantic
Aha.
Quote:
... the sea...
I heard of that, but the roads make a 30km ride worth some planning in advance. We have been to “the beaches” and it will happen again... once a year or so. Nice to see, in winter, with no tourists around.

Quote:
endless hedges
Yep. If you take a really quick look. Because bloody politicians prefer dead soil to be boosted with chemicals from small farms doing what farming has always been. The hedges are almost gone. The next troupe who debarks in Normandy will not need hedge-cutters on their tanks.

Quote:
of mure...
It is bilberries and hazelnuts, here. But the hedges bear other fruit, worth trying. Medlars are underestimated.

i had to look that up; the western part could be similar to some parts of britanny i guess.
i wish i could remember the names of the places i've been to... it's been so long ago.
