Thanks to Celtic Radio, I've recently become exposed to Blackmore's Night... I just love and adore their "Now and Then" song... and I'm interested in picking up more of their repertoire, but there's so much and I don't know where to start!
First of all I'd like to welcome you to Celtic Radio Joanne25. I like so many songs of Blackmores Night. But my favorite has always been All For One off of the album Ghost of A Rose. It's one of those songs that has been embedded in my mind forever. I hope you enjoy the great folks here on the forum as well.
My top three BN songs are Fires at Midnight, their version of The Times are a'Changing (which I think is thier best video) and The Village Lantern. The first song off thier new album is growing on me too. the one about the Highlands-I can't remember the name right now and I don't have the CD yet but its the first song on there.
And wouldn't you know it but BN just started playing on Celtic Rock radio right now as I was typing this. Coincidence?

The number that for me will always be their best is "Fires at Midnight"- it's the song that made me become a fan. The whole mystical atmosphere they create with that song is wonderful. Besides that, It's hard for me to name what other songs I consider "their best" - I really like "Faery Queen", as well as "Play Minstrel Play".
Anyone here ever been to one of their "castle tour" shows? I've attended 2 of them in Germany, and, IMHO, there's no better way to experience their music then them playing it live in the courtyard of an old castle.
Tact? What good in tact? I've tried that on people, and they still don't do what I want!
