I think it sounds better than the American version.

Sponge Bob mesmerizes me. I have to skip over it quickly or I get totally stuck.

Here's a question I've always wanted to ask people who don't speak Irish: What does it sound like? Harsh, angry, sad, musical, happy etc.

Here's an example:

The ex-Presidente talking

So, what do ye think?

I wouldn't expect you to, it's a very hard language to learn- the grammar is ridiculous! She's talking to the Irish diaspora around the world for St. Patrick's Day although me being the Irish Grammar Nazi I am, notice that she doesn't pronounce the "h's" in a couple of words.

 

A debate in the comment section of the video:

Which sounds nicer? French or Irish?

Irish sounds nicer to me. I don't know, something the French accent has never warmed up to me.

The only thing that's good about Irish is I can sort of understand Scottish Gaelic and Manx (and I get work out if it, obviously) - I can't read them (What the hell is Scottish about) but I'd get the gist of what somebody is saying which is always nice. I always watch BBC Alba when I'm at my apartment in Galway, the similarities between the two languages is amazing!  A lot of words are the same but spelt differently, I can understand the weather report in Gaelic :P

To my ears, that Irish ex-President sounds like an alien being from the Planet Goibhniu in the Constellation of Conchobhar, informing Mankind that her people come in peace. blue-meanie

Can you understand Welsh?  I've seen some road signs in Welsh, and some names of towns can have like 30 letters in them.

It is a lot nicer/softer sounding than German for sure.

But, sorry, I have to go with French as my preference over Irish. Please don't take it personally :-)

Listening to my homework - this week is folk music - and found Simon & Garfunkel's "My Little Town," which I really enjoyed.

^^ This part:

And after it rains
There's a rainbow
And all of the colors are black
It's not that the colors aren't there
It's just imagin-ation they lack
Everything's the same
Back in my little town

reminds me of that movie Pleasantville.

I really like the aggressive sound of the acoustic piano in Paul Simon's "My Little Town" as well as its very "piano-y" tonality, and the use of deep bass keys rarely heard in pop songs.  No doubt Simon (like the other Paul, an obsessive about musical recording) meticulously scripted what and how the pianist should play.

"My Sweet Lord"...  a-hard-days-night-george-10

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Came across the Robert Randolph and the Family Band while looking up funk-revivalist bands for my class presentation. I wouldn't call this particular song an example of funk, but I love it.

I used to live in Llandegfan in North Wales, I can pronounce some Welsh (all those double-lls) but not speak it any more - been too many years away.

On topic; listening to "Beatles 1962-1966, disc 1".  I am up to 1966, last was "Revolver", next will be "Sgt. Pepper's" - once I get disc 2 of the red box out of the way.  I had a digression when I bought "New" and "Lightning Bolt", I think this is the first time since the 1980s that I have had 2 new top ten albums to listen to in the one week - I feel so hip :)
