I’ve been requested to play some Star Wars themes at an upcoming funeral and thought it would be fun to hastily throw together a rough medley. Although it’ll be more subdued on the day, the Glasthule organ IS the father.

Mothers and Fathers – I Will Always Love You

Mothers & Fathers write:

We are a duo from North Dublin, working together sporadically over the past three years. I Will Always Love You is a response to the bigotry and homophobic rhetoric used against those seeking equality in Ireland’s upcoming referendum.

Down by the schoolhouse
At the corner of Mount Street Bridge
The crack of a bullet
Echoes from the surgeons’ college
And here by the canal
A silence descends like death
Little do some know
They’re about to draw their final breath

Fiach Moriarty and RTÉ Concert Orchestra – Mount Street Bridge

The inner monologue of a young English soldier “marching towards the gunfire of the 1916 Easter Rising”.

Filmed live in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin as part of the RTÉ Arena ‘Road to the Rising’ special.

Walk like a man keep your shoulders broad,
Ease up on the mincing you’ll fit in with the crowd.

Jack O’Rourke – Silence

Elaine Murphy writes:

A former teacher of mine has co written and produced this song for the upcoming marriage referendum. All profits are going towards Amnesty International. The song is so beautifully written and produced, I have shed many a tear listening to it. It’s about suppression and about someone growing up gay in Ireland’s past – how there were alot of silent song birds – but now that is changing – so there’s hope underneath all those minor chords….”
