The Sensational !


The Sensational Melissa Etheridge who I could listen to forever, though I do feel that she is unfortunately underrated for she is a very talented singer and musician.

  1. Never heard of her, but I do like this. I suppose this proves your point.

    1. Thank you Anne and as my old mother who was in the entertainment business for awhile would have said 'Melissa is a real trooper'

  2. She's OK Heron. I prefer Classic Rock music. Do you like Ireland's Crystal Swing or the Rubber Bandits?

  3. Can't say that I have ever heard of them Dave.

    My favourite Irish musicians and singers Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Glen Hansard, The Frames and Kila; you might say I'm prejudiced, seeing as I know a few of them :)
    There are of course several more but me memory for names never was much good !
    There is an up and coming singer/song writer Mairead Furlong too.

  4. Thin Lizzy and Clannad for me, Heron. Have a look at "Horse Outside" by the Rubber Bandits. Warning: contains bad language. Very funny though. Glen Hansard is good, especially in the film: "Once".

    1. Thanks for jogging my memory Dave :) Yeah Tin Lizzy as they say around here,
      I was never smitten by Clannad.
      Tbone Kelly now there's a character and a half ! Hawaian-Irish great musician, singer, chef and biker now living in France.
      Incidentally Glen & Colm had parts in The Commitments , I suppose that's in the dark ages now :) ?

  5. Yes Heron. Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy) apparently came up with the name for the band after reading a comic about a character called: "Tin Lizzy". I remember the Commitments. Didn't Roddy Doyle write it?

    1. Never knew that Dave.
      What I was actually referring to was the different way of pronouncing 'th' in Irish as opposed to that of English.

  6. Ah, I'll have to listen to it when I have a normal internet connection. This is far too mb hungry for my very meagre dongle, but I'll look forward to it!

  7. She's wonderful in concert - I was able to see her perform about 10 years ago. Although her music isn't something I listen to frequently, whenever I do see her in print or video, she makes me smile!
