Happiness on Amazon
A few weeks ago while Mom and I were putting together a slide show for Dad's 70th birthday, I was poking around on Amazon for some appropriate tunes. On a whim, I searched for The Irish Rovers. I didn't expect to find anything, because this record has always been my first search on a new music service, so of course I'd looked for it back when Amazon first introduced MP3 downloads. Somehow it hadn't occurred to me that they'd be adding to their offerings.... (Duh!)
Anyhow, yeah, I downloaded the whole album. And yeah, I've been tooling around town singing along (southern girl + no ear for languages + overdose of the Irish Rovers = "unicairns", apparently) unashamedly. Well, maybe a little ashamedly. But not enough to stop :-)
So, here's a link to the sound of my happy childhood! I had to pick one song (oh, the agony!) which really isn't fair, but this is one I find myself singing in the shower, so I figure it's a good representative choice. I'm not sure I know anybody besides my dad who will enjoy this as much as I do, but I still feel compelled to share....
