The votes are in.

Last week, with a pair of tickets to see Bill Callahan [also known as Smog] at Vicar Street in September, I asked you to name your favourite song by Bill/Smog.

You answered in your tens.

But there could be only one winner.

Sarah Kennedy deservedly wins the tickets with this heartfelt choice

My favourite Smog song is ‘Rock Bottom Riser’ (above). One of my children had died a few years previously and I was trying to come to terms with the loss. I remember having a very dark day and then I heard this song and it gave me hope and reminded me to reach out to my loved ones for support. I’m doing okay now but I always thank this song for lifting me on that dark day and reminding me to reach out to others when feeling despair.

Thanks all.
