Nice finds, but I find Ronnie Drew´s (R.I.P as well as Mr. Clancy) version even more chilling (gotta turn the volume up a bit in comparison), probably for the voice and that for me his version kind of sounds more "authentic" and matter-of-fact and not so much like a well meant "fishing-for-compliments" attempt (no disrespect meant to song or artist, thats just what comes over for me).

Interesting the two most renowned interpreters of this Eric Bogle (he himself a Scot who emigrated to Aussieland) song would be Irish...


FWIW,

Yeah I enjoy the Dubliners version also, and it does have more edge and less show to it. I really wish that Luke Kelly would have done it instead of Ronnie though.




He's good too


And this one:






Yeah I'm a dark mood.

@ Sky, thanks for the Evanescence Bring me back to life thingy, a song I have liked for a long time but could not have placed it, just knew if from the radio.

@ 03: I am also a bit depressed and in a dark mood (I feel it especially after a few brandies), sign of the times methinks.

No music today, still listening to all the input of all you ppl.

Just seen the Crow (again), one of my favorite movies and it has a pretty good soundtrack as well.
