The first ever CelticRadio.net Song of the Year will be named on January 1, 2005.

Voting will be done by our community polling system and we will have about 5 songs to choose from.

I'd like to take some recommendations here for songs to be nominated to this award. We will send a award certificate to the winning artist (hey we're on a low budget!). I have a few in mind, but would like to get everyone's thoughts and recommendations.

The song does not have to be released in 2005, but should be a recent song that is played on Highlander Radio. I am thinking no more than 10 years in the past. I am putting such a broad range of years because old songs are sometimes discovered by new listeners! biggrin.gif

Voting will begin on December 1st, 2005 until December 31st, 2005 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Ok, lets have your recommendations! thumbs_up.gif walkman.gif

If I had to pick 5 songs they would be (in no particular order) and picking only 5 songs is a tough one!



1. Send Me A Song - Celtic Woman (David Downey/Lisa Kelly)
2. Erin Gra Mo Chroi [Ireland Love of My Heart] - Cherish the Ladies
3. My Heart Belongs To You - Hayley Westenra {best new artist maybe?}
4. Drink the Night Away - Gaelic Storm
5. South Australia - Gaelic Storm

I think thats a great idea mac. my vote is for 'Geraldines wishing on Galway' of course thats because the only place i can find that song is on highlander radio. oh and some guy wants to sell the cd its on on amazon for 95 dollars. its a great song but not that great, hopefully cdbaby will get it in sometime soon.

Don't forget Ed Miller's "The Prince of Darkness." That's an amazing bit of writing and singing.

--------------------
The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.
~Mark Twain
