Do you listen to the lyrics?

READ on.

Robert writes:

“I am working on a video project (with others) where we are creating a montage of examples of excellence in Irish (non traditional) music lyrics….we are  fashioning the snatches of songs in interesting font, etc……this is where you come in. Have your readers any suggestions of bits of [Irish-made] songs that we should include…maybe some off the beaten track?  Everyone credited. Thank you…”

Anyone?

UPDATE: Robert adds: “..would it be possible to include the names of the writers of the songs also if that is available.”

The title track from ‘The Struggle EP’ – a collaboration between Limerick producers Graeme S and MynameisjOhn featuring the lyrical flow of MC God Knows. To wit:

The three track EP is inspired by the bleak prospectives of modern-day Ireland and how the lack of opportunities can inspire a communal desire for change and progression. Musically, the producers’ focus is equally on the rhythmic stylings of the slow/fast movement and the balance of melody alongside intricate drum patterns and bass. Similarly, God Knows balances his unique insights on contemporary Irish society with lung-busting flows and grimy nuances.
