There's a dear little plant that grows in our Isle Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it; And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile, And with dew from his eye often wet it. It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.
"I am a Canadian by birth, but I am a Highlander by blood and feel under an obligation to do all I can for the sake of the Highlanders and their literature.... I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."
-Alexander Maclean Sinclair of Goshen (protector of Gaelic Culture)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but either way this conversation makes me think of the first time I heard "Iron Man". I hadn't had my Onkyo reciever very long and was trying out the FM reciever on Arrow 101.5. Iron Man came on after a small break in the audio, I stopped, turned around and wondered What the ::cencored is wrong with my new stereo?? Then once it got into the song I realised what was going on and stopped freaking out.
Listening to my Celtic Playlist atm Thought about putting on Heart's Bad Animals earlier.
For those of you who don't know what the heck I'm talking about, the Ozzy Dance can only be done to the Black Sabbath song "Paranoid". Do some headbanging like this , then at the end of each stanza, bob your head to the left. Then, during the non-vocal parts, clap your hands off-beat.
