Ah Scarborough Fair, I love the Anuna version and the Leaves' eyes version. :D

The Good old days of music........
Sit a while and reflect, times long gone, times of spirit, times of love, times of peace, times of eternal Summer and sun, rebellion against the corrupt, power of the flower, rock, time of youth... I am art, I am color, Oh children of the 60's..

Lyrics...

"Sailing Ships"

Do you remember
Standing on the shore,
Head in the clouds,
Your pockets filled with dreams
Bound for glory
On the seven seas of life,
But, the ocean is deeper than it seems

The wind was with you
When you left on the morning tide,
You set your sail for an island in the sun,
On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead,
For the storm has just begun

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
Lead me to the distant shore

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see
You're the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass you by

You cry for mercy,
When you think you've lost your way,
You drift alone, if all your hope is gone
So take the time and you will see
You control, your destiny,
After all is said and done

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
An' lead me to the distant shore

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky
Take the time to see
You're the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass,
Sailing ships will pass you,
Sailing ships will pass you by...

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don't pass you by

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
We'll ride the wind across the sky
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don't pass,
So sailing ships don't pass you,
So sailing ships don't pass you by...

Baby, baby, baby, baby,
You'll find that you're the only one
Can sail your ship across the sky

I have to say Loreena McKennit sings my favourite version of this song :)

Oh, and the lady of Shalott

I have always liked Loreena McKennitt's song "Highwayman" adapted from the poem of the same name by Alfred Noyes

And I love the tune from her song "All Souls Night"

Wow, she is the most amazing performer, her songs are so atmospheric. I owe my love of her music to my sister Tracy who writes poetry and in fact, if you're interested, she hosts a poetry & music show in Ireland. You can listen online here:

I'm not sure where you are, but it goes out on Wednesday at 5pm GMT. :)

Things behind the sun - Nick Drake.

A very beautiful song, yet accompanied by this amazing artistic influenced video of early America. I have never seen this video before and found it to be truly thought provoking, of days gone by....
