More than 200 Song Docs !

Wow, we've passed the magic number of 200 Song Documents today and I still feel it's just a start!

One of the latest traditional songs I discovered on YouTube is "The Banks Of Sullane", beautifully sung by Niamh Parsons. I also added Molly Ban today, which I never saw better performed than by Alison Krauss and The Chieftains. I'm trying to learn both songs which is quite a challenge. I wonder if I can reproduce the correct melody when I wake up tomorrow morning.

Talking about sleeping: don't forget to enjoy the old song "Heap Of Little Horses", a.k.a. "Go To Sleep Little Baby" sung by Patty Griffin and put in a magic atmoshpere by the good old Chieftains.

Good night, sleep tight!

The Road Not Taken

On a pleasant evening in June, browsing the internet, I discovered a beautiful poem about the choices that everyone makes in his life. The poem is made by Robert Frost, a famous American poet (1874-1963), and performances can be found on YouTube. However, I could not find a song on his text, so I gave it a try. Below is the link to the mp3 I recorded. I hope you like it.

Angel Of Paradise

Do you recognize this? Sometimes you hear a song and it stays in your head. All you remember is just a few lines of the chorus, but you want to know all the words. That's what I had with Kieran Halpin's "Angle Of Paradise" last weekend. As a real Googler I tried to find it on the internet but: no true results. Luckily I found a YouTube-link in my favourites, so then I knew the singer and the title. However, although Keiran sings clearly, I couldn't figure out all the words. So I thought: "why not ask Kieran himself?" So I went to and explained my serious problem.

Well, Kieran really made my day! Within an hour he sent me the song text of his beautifull "Angle Of Paradise". So now I can share it with all of you on

Thanks Kieran!
