Bruach Na Cairraige Baine

07:58 PM

Bruach Na Cairraige Baine Another song from my second demo CD “Fighting Shadows”. This is the only song on that album that I did not write myself (with the exception of the bridge). It is a traditional Irish song about unrequited love and it is one of my favourite Irish songs. My first conscious recollection of this song is a duet by Mary Black and Séamus Begley. I discovered later that I already knew an instrumental version of this song by Clannad.

When The Sun Goes Down I wrote this song about two months ago, before the song Empty Days. After working it out and mixing it, I wasn’t pleased with it, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it was that didn’t make it work. So I set it aside. Last week, I went back to this song as a friend of mine asked me if I didn’t have more happy songs. I redid the whole song, chose other instruments and mixed it again. I then waited a couple of days to make sure I was happy with this version and I am pleased to say that I am.

The song is heavily influenced by my love for Irish music, though there is also a hint of Eastern influences. I hope you like it.

Be Yourself Nowadays, so much is expected of people that it’s too easy to loose yourself by shaping oneself to what others want or expect. And it is so important to remain true to oneself. By being yourself, you experience less stress and you feel much better. But it isn’t always easy. I wrote this song to be reminded of the importance of being yourself.
