I keep posting this song, I know, but I keep finding new versions. All beautiful. And it might be my favourite song.

Kate Rusby - The Wild Goose

^ Probably thanks to one of those earlier posts, I have a slightly different version of Kate Rusby singing The Wild Goose. Either way, it's my favourite Kate Rusby song. The thing that caught my attention with this video clip were the photos at 0:50 and 1:40; they are of a ridge called Striding Edge, which I have walked from top to tail!

As for Sailor's Life - yes, a great track. I like the way the music swells, then slackens to let Richard Thompson's extended guitar break shine.

From what I've heard (= not much), I don't really like Pol Mac Adaim's material, but on this traditional song he changes his style and really brings out the sinister mystery of the lyrics:-

...........she swore by grass, she swore by corn...

^ Striding Edge? Is that in the Lake District? Looks real pretty in the music video. Nothing like a scrambling up a ridge to make you feel alive.

Tracy Chapman - Talkin' 'Bout A Revolution (live)





Tracy Chapman - All That You Have Is Your Soul (live)





Tracy Chapman - Speak the Word





Tracy Chapman - Paper and Ink




I love a bit of Tracy. Her songs make me come over all righteous and moral and I go outside and lay another brick in the ivory tower I'm building. Okay, not really. Lovely music though.

Not heard this in a long, long time. Nice vibe.

Remember way back when, when the sun shone low and golden, when everything was soft around the edges, when you put flowers in your hair and mushrooms in your tea? Me too! Let's reminisce to this:

Beth Gibbons - Mysteries
