Loreena McKennitt – The Bonny Swans

Probabil puţini ştiu că sunt un fan declarat al ei. Îmi place la nebunie Loreena McKennitt. Şi piesa asta de pe albumul The Mask And Mirror e una dintre preferatele mele.

Deşi stilul nu e unul (evident..) uşor digerabil, vocea ei mi se pare extraordinară. Stilul e irish şi există o chestie legată de Loreena pe care nu mulţi o ştiu (dacă au auzit de ea) şi anume că piesele ei sunt pe coloanele sonore la o grămadă de filme cu legende.

Dar două lucruri m-au uimit la această voce extraordinară:

  1. deşi stilul ei muzical este irish ea nu are nici o legătură cu Irlanda sau măcar Anglia. Ea este canadiancă, dar probabil stilul ăsta a reprezentat-o pe ea cel mai bine.
  2. primul ei album, a fost scos la … casa EI de discuri (quinlanroad). câţi artişti fac asta în ziua de azi?

Dar mai multe puteţi citi pe siteul ei oficial unde puteţi asculta şi alte piese ale artistei precum şi citi versurile acesteia.

Acum vă las cu Loreena McKennitt – The Bonny Swans. Audiţie plăcută şi download plăcut.

A farmer there lived in the north country
a hey ho bonny o
And he had daughters one, two, three
The swans swim so bonny o
These daughters they walked by the river’s brim
a hey ho bonny o
The eldest pushed the youngest in
The swans swim so bonny o

Oh sister, oh sister, pray lend me your hand
with a hey ho a bonny o
And I will give you house and land
the swans swim so bonny o
I’ll give you neither hand nor glove
with a hey ho a bonny o
Unless you give me your own true love
the swans swim so bonny o

Sometimes she sank, sometimes she swam
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Until she came to a miller’s dam
the swans swim so bonny o

The miller’s daughter, dressed in red
with a hey ho and a bonny o
She went for some water to make some bread
the swans swim so bonny o

Oh father, oh daddy, here swims a swan
with a hey ho and a bonny o
It’s very like a gentle woman
the swans swim so bonny o
They placed her on the bank to dry
with a hey ho and a bonny o
There came a harper passing by
the swans swim so bonny o

He made harp pins of her fingers fair
with a hey ho and a bonny o
He made harp strings of her golden hair
the swans swim so bonny o
He made a harp of her breast bone
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And straight it began to play alone
the swans swim so bonny o

He brought it to her father’s hall
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And there was the court, assembled all
the swans swim so bonny o
He laid the harp upon a stone
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And straight it began to play lone
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my father the King
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And yonder sits my mother the Queen
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my brother Hugh
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And by him William, sweet and true
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my false sister, Anne
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Who drowned me for the sake of a man
the swans swim so bonny o (sursa)

Şi ca de obicei, şi link spre download.

P.S: Am toată discografia ei pe laptop. Şi când sunt trist, îmi mângâi urechile cu vocea ei. Şi mă face să ma simt mai bine. Şi mai puternic. Şi mai împăcat cu mine :)
