Music What I Does Like: Chapter Two

"Ride On", Christy Moore
folk
UK

glenatron introduced me to this song. On one hand I'm not 100% fond of his vocals or the occasional country 'n' western sound that slips in - dear god, I hate country - but it is still a beautiful song. "And you ride the horse so well, hands light to the touch; I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to. Ride on, see you, I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to".


"Scupper Shanty", Abney Park
steampunk
USA

I bought their new album at the gig on Thursday; this is my favourite song from it. I just love that chorus! And the violin! <3 "Hold your head up, keep your head up, hold your sword up fight! Fight! Fight!"


"Burning Leaves", Ensiferum
folk metal
Finland

I completely forgot to include this song in my last post; BUT THE ALBUM IS OUT TOMORROW OH MY FREAKING GODS EEEEEEEEEEE. *flails* If you'd told me 3 years ago that I'd end up being such an Ensiferum fangirl, I'd never have believed you; I used to be totally against them. When I first discovered Wintersun, I fell head over heels in love with Jari's vocals and would listen to the album obsessively. Then I realised he'd been the original vocalist in Ensiferum, so I bought the first two albums and the demos that had him on ... but I refused to buy anything from the band post-Jari. Then From Afar came out and I bought it for some reason and then I bought Victory Songs and then I've been hungrily awaiting their next album ever since. :3


I do have a couple of other songs that I wanted to share, but this has taken me over 40 minutes to do already and my bandwidth has, finally, more or less ground to a halt ... I don't have the patience to try and get any more links. Bastard machine.

I'm surprised you didn't use this version of Ride On:

I like the way it tells you what a horse is, in case you don't know.

Yeh ... when I finally got round to writing this post, I forgot that I'd found a Cruachan version. Then I did remember, but couldn't remember if I'd liked it. And by that time my internet had gone to the dogs and I couldn't be bothered to try and find the video.
