'God's Gonna Cut You Down' by Johnny Cash

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1e0EQlQXoEo

The video's really cool too.  Never thought I'd see Iggy Pop, Flea, Kris Kristofferson and Kanye West singing the same song, but that's the influence Johnny Cash has.

No, the Rastafarian God is not the Christian God.
The Rastafarian god agrees with you, since he was an Orthodox Christian ;D

I kept hearing this song here and there and couldn't guess the artist... I stumbled upon it completely by accident when I was searching for something else!  Really laid back 'chill out' music...

Dido No Angel and Life for Rent off and on.

My brother killed my PC with a virus so I lost ALL my downloads and virtually my entire music catalogue. So I am limited to what I can rip from the CD's I still have. I could strangle him.......

Your brother created a virus just to destroy your computer?  That's hilarious!

No, he downloaded some flight sim stuff that was actually a virus. So I had all this horrible S&M and homosexual porn all over my computer that wouldn't come off. So if that computer is connected in anyway to a power source or the internet it is full of graphic porn. Then to try and get rid of the porn he erased my entire hard drive. (which still didn't get all the porn of).

Norway's Alexander Rybak's "Fairytale". Although he's young, and I'm afraid, proud.

Found myself entranced by this hauntingly beautiful version of the Song of Songs in Hebrew by Divna Ljubojevic "Pesma nad Pesmama".

Have you heard of Alan Stivell? Being a "Celt," I think you will love this guy. A friend of mine that I met in Mexico 20 years ago turned me on to him. I listened to the tape he gave me until it literally broke. I tried for years to find a CD by him here in the Sates, and eventually succeeeded. Then, alas, I lent it to a friend and never got it back!

But I'm glad to see him on Youtube. Now I will try to order another CD. I can't understand the lyrics, because they apparrently are in (Gaelic?) But his is some of the most unique music I've ever heard. Haunting, powerful, rhythmic, and ethereal. Maybe you could help me understand the lyrics.

Let me know what you think.

Selam,

Thanks for bringing Mr. Alan to my attention.  I always appreciate being exposed to new genre's and artists.  But to be honest with you, I personally thought his style sounded a bit new agey and couldn't get the language as it didn't sound like Gaelic.  I thought it sounded sort of like French and then I Googled him and found I wasn't too far off; he's a Breton from Brittany- meaning he's a Celt from a particular area in France. Being a Celt, his language is Celtic, but it's not Gaelic.  As for his music, I wouldn't necessarily classify it as Celtic per se, though it does incorporate much of Breton culture.  Mr. Alan is said to incorporate many different styles in his music and I think that's very obvious.  When listening to Celtic music (which is a good deal of the time as I'm learning to play the feadóg [the tinwhistle]), I prefer the music of Éire i.e Ireland.

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty much a strictly conscious reggae man these days, but Alan Stivell always stirs my spirit. Some of his stuff does sound a bit New Agey, which I don't care for either. But a lot of his stuff is pretty raw but still very tight musically. Check out some of his harp instrumentals. Beautiful stuff. He really incorporates a unique array of instruments which I find uniquely appealing.

BTW, were you able to decipher any of his lyrics? I wonder if he has any Christian lyrics, or if its mostly Celtic folk lyrics. I'm interested to know.

I had a good friend who played bagpipes and all kinds of Irish flutes that I forget the names of. He toured briefly with Michael Card, but got fed up with him pretty fast. He was a talented guy. We lost touch over the years, but he had never heard of Alan Stivell until I brought him to his attention. He loved it.

On another note... I was a huge U2 fan in the early 80's. My friends laughed at me when I told them about U2, 'cause they'd never heard of them. I first heard them on an alternative college radio station in Atlanta, where I'm from. I wasn't a Christian at the time, but I remember being impressed by the fact that they all professed to be Christians (at least 3 of them anyway). Now I can't stand them. After about their 4th album I thought they really sold out. Too bad, cause they were good when they were young and hungry.

Musically, I still like U2 as a group, but I can't stand Bono or his goofy politics. 
Bono really got the big head fast. But I guess I have to give U2 credit for sticking together for all these years. Not many bands that have achieved their level of success have stayed together. I think Bono is basically a good guy, but he does irritate me.

Well, I can say one thing for him: He is committed to his family. How many rock musicians do you know who have been married 25 years and have five children?
