Keep Holding On

In another week or two I will be back to blogging properly. Bless all those who check in to see if I update at all these days. Here's a song that I just had to post when I heard it today. It's Randy Crawford with a really beautiful version of Simply Red's Holding Back the Years. She is one of those artists that I was going to see in concert over the years and at the last minute the concert was cancelled. I did get to see Simply Red last year and even though I was never a big fan of Mick and his ever changing band I have always liked this song ever since the first time I heard it on a Kilkenny radio.

Success Has Made...

David has a great post on Sinead O'Connor here. Sinead is an Irish artist who I have always liked. Living in Dublin I have seen her a few times. Never in concert ,though I did see her at an Irish awards show two years ago. She was seated in a side front row that faced the standing audience with Westlife sitting nearby. I remember seeing Westlife with all their partners including Kevin, Mark's partner and then seeing Sinead too.

David mentions a couple of Sinead's songs that he likes and one of them is also one of my most favourites. It's Success Has Made A Failure Of Our Home which was on the soundtrack for In The Name Of The Father and was also on her third album Am I Not Your Girl?
