Song of the Day

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova 

There are some things that only comes once in a lifetime. Blessed are those people who recognize it when it’s right in front of them. Lucky are those people who find it for the second time because some people just let it pass them by without noticing it, and kept searching for it all their life.

 

Music Spotlight #1: The Corrs

The Corrs.

I’ve loved the music of this Irish band, The Corrs, since I was in grade school. The 4 member band of siblings; Andrea (main vocal/tin whistle), Sharon (violin/vocals), Caroline (drums, piano, bodhran, vocals) and Jim (guitar, piano, keyboard, vocals) were amazing, beautiful and equally talented.  I love their music and style, and especially love their album “Talk on Corners” and pretty much was one the staple playlist of my early adolescent years. It makes me sad that they are not performing as a group anymore since they all moved on with life with their respective families. I love their unplugged performances that were mostly featured on MTV. This song in particular, Runaway, is one of my favorites. I wish I could have gone to their concert, even just once. 😦

 

I’ve been feeling kind of under the weather lately and somehow, listening to their music soothes me. Brings back old memories of when I was younger, more carefree and oblivious to the real world. Nostalgic?
