This is called "She moved through the Fair"

 

It's one of the first anti racism songs written about Ireland. About a mixed couple from Britain and Ireland who believe their families would understand that they were in love.

 

 

My young love said to me my mother won't mind,
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind,
He went away from me and this he did say,
'It will not be long love till our wedding day.'

He went away from me and he moved through the fair,
And slowly I watched him move here and move there,
He went his way homeward with one star awake,
As the swan in the evening moves over the lake.

I dreamed last night that my young love came in,
He came in so sweetly, his feet made no din;
He stepped close beside me, and this he did say,
'It will not be long love, till our wedding day'

'It will not be long love, till our wedding day'

Apolonia, that is my mothers favourite song. She told me about being at protests against the Vietnam war and thousands of people singing we shall overcome together.

My main reason for setting up this group is because we don't a "we shall overcome" for my generation, now it's all about cash. I believe that music becoming an industry was the worst thing to happen to it. The Clash have a song called "white man in the Hammersmith palais" and there is a line in it that goes "The new groups are not concerned
with what there is to be learned.
They have burton suits and they think it's funny
Turning rebellion into money"

I think that sums up how music is made today, even though that was written about 30 years ago.

Even ten years ago the biggest selling music was heavy metal. Music that is meant to be a voice of a dissafected youth that didn't exist in numbers tha you could attribute to these bands successes. Now there is a youth that feel let down by wars poverty again. Like in the 60s and 70s. And where are these musicians now ?

The greatest is still "We Shall Overcome" known allover the world. It's melody was also used (with due credit to Tinsley) in a symphony by American composer William Rowland. In 1999 National Public Radio included "We Shall Overcome" on their NPR 100 list of most important American songs of the 20th century. As a reference to the line, on January 20, 2009, after the inauguration of Barack Obama as 44th U.S. President, a man holding the banner, "WE HAVE OVERCOME" was seen near the Capitol, a day after hundreds of people posed with the sign on Martin Luther King Jr. day.

I think Joan Baez did a lot of these great songs. This one speaks for itself no explaination necessary!

I couldn't get this song out of my head. I saw a man on Saturday night attemptng to commit suicide off of a bridge in the middle of Dublin. People were watching and shouting "JUMP" and laughing and taking photos. One woman brought her children whom were about five or six years old to see if he was going to jump. I was waiting on a bus, I wasn't there for the spectator sport of suicide like some of the people.


Lyrics*

Eye on the TV
'cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be

Like:
"Killed by the husband" ...
"Drowned by the ocean" ...
"Shot by his own son" ...
"She used a poison in his tea,
Then (she) kissed him goodbye"
That's my kind of story
It's no fun til someone dies.

Don't look me at like I am a monster
Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
Watches him die,
Hands to the sky cryin "why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too - don't lie.

Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'
Neither the brave nor bold
Nor brightest of stories told
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'

I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so why can't we just admit it?

Blood like rain fallin' down
Drum on grave and ground

Part vampire, part warrior,
Carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle.

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out (of) your hippie haze
And give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile
So impersonal
Devour to survive
So it is, so it's always been ...

We all feed on tragedy.
It's like blood to a vampire.

Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.
