What do y'all think of "Danny Boy"?

Pick an artist:
Johnny Cash
Willie Nelson
Charley Pride
(or many others)

Here are the lyrics:

Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling,
From glen to glen and down the mountain side;
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling;
It's you, it's you must go, and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow;
I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow;
Danny boy, Oh Danny boy, I love you so.

But if you come and all the flowers are dying,
If I am dead, as dead I well may be.
You'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I will know, 'though soft ye tread around me,
And then my grave shall richer sweeter be,
Then you'll bend down and tell me that you love me,
And I shall rest in peace until you come to me.

          Oh ok i play nice.. i never ask to have songs removed from the list even though i dont like them...Simply because i figure others do like them.. But if you want to play that game. i can too.......... :-\.

           Oh yes Eric i think it fits very well..  But i will have to lay in a new supply of tissues...That song always has made me cry.  Ever since i first heard it as a child...

Also known as "Londonderry Air," which could be heard as "London Derriere."  :)

I love that song, yes.  One factor in who to choose might be pick a short one.

RE:  Danny Boy
Ok, so you're going to make me choose, hunh?  Ok, I'm puttin' someone's version on the air, but I'm not tellin' who's.  You'll have to listen to find out.   :D


RE:  Voting
Yes please do vote "Thumbs Up" or "Thumbs Down" as often as you like whenever you hear your favorite or not so favorite songs.  The votes are only tallied for the last 30 days and on a 30 day rotation.  So if you voted for a song in March, it no longer counts.


BTW:  The DJ knows who likes what, and who suggested or commented on which songs.  The DJ also knows what songs had high "Thumbs Up" counts in the past, and suddenly have lots of "Thumbs Down" votes, and it's all relative and taken into consideration.  The DJ also sees when folks tune in and tune out during the day and during which songs.  The DJ is watching....  ;D  ;)

Question for you  Eric - if there is a song you really can't stand would you still put it on the playlist if someone suggested it?  ie not let personal views colour your DJ skills

"Danny Boy" is a strange one for me.  In the UK it's got a reputation as being the sort of song drunk people sing down the pub or at gatherings towards the end of evening when it all starts going a bit silly! I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing but it takes out any meaning for me, even the version by the fabulous Mr Cash.

Yes, there are songs I personally don't care for that folks have requested, and I've put them on the air.  Those songs go on to be quite favorites among the listeners, even though I personally don't care for it.  That's also one of the reasons we have these 'feedback forums' so you can tell me what you guys want to hear on the station.   :D

RE:  Danny Boy
I was afraid some folks might view the song as such.  Well, it's currently in the playlist, let's see how it does.  What do others' think about the song?

I'd also like to take this time to remind folks of Phillip's vision for BBM Radio:
