10. Feb. 2011, 11:27 von magnuscanisAs with the last time I wrote a journal entry here (quite some time ago!), I have been listening to multiple versions of a single song on spotify.
This time the song in question is Bold Riley, a traditional sea shanty (as far as I know).
I have been familiar with this song for many years in the version performed by the Oysterband, which is still my firm favourite. More recently I have come to know the Kate Rusby version, which sadly isn't available on spotify at the moment.
My play queue for this morning consisted of 9 versions of the song, including the Oysterband one. I don't recall having heard any of the other versions here before, although several of the artists, including The Wailin' Jennys, Tim van Eyken and Louis Killen, are familiar to me.
There was quite a nice range of treatments, from traditional a cappella shanty singing (such as Killen's version and the one by Holdstock & MacLeod), through to fairly modified arrangements such as the one from Rising Gael…

Step 2: Post the first line or verse from the first 30 songs that play, not matter how embarassing.
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
1. Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken
And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken
The Cranberries - Zombie

horses are the
same men who would
like to kiss your hand

Sends the frozen snow skidding
A river on a river hardened over

No matter what the time is.

I'm really bored,
It's getting late,

6. Hold on to love, that is what I do
Now that I've found you
And from above, everything's stinking,
There not around you.
