    You know, just reposting fark links would normally be gauche, but today this one is right (and it’s a classic)

    My favorite song in Irish Gaelic, Clannad, Dealramh go Deo

    Nach cuma cá háit a théim,
    i mbaile nó i gcéin,
    ‘s mé ag éisteacht le ceolta mo thíre
    Le mothú, brón is brí
    Cuir lúcháir ar mo chroí
    ‘S tú ceol mo shinsear ‘s mo shaoil romham

    Though I go here or there
    to home or far
    I hear the harmonies of my country
    Laden with emotion, sadness and freight of meaning,
    it fills my soul with deepest joy
    The harmonies of my ancestors and all that came before.

    I suppose the Pogues are the odd man out here because it’s likely you’ll listen to their albums on other days of the year as well.Report

    Mouth Music, Whaling Ship.

    And in her heart she knows that he would defend her
    And travel far and wide to be by her side
    And calling out his name, she longs for the winter
    And for the day that he would walk up the lane

    For he’s away on a whaling ship
    For he’s away on a whaling ship
    And it was bound for Greenland
    For he’s away on a whaling ship
    For he’s away on a whaling ship
    And it was bound for Greenland

    And on a whaling vessel he set sail from her
    She hid her tears from him and laughed at the rain
    But now the earth is dry and the acres untended
    And many thieves and outlaws walk up the lane

    For he’s away on a whaling ship
    For he’s away on a whaling ship
    And it was bound for Greenland…Report
