CREEPY: Damien Rice – 9 Crimes (video)

This has got to be the creepiest video for a FOLK song I have ever seen. It scares the hell out of me but the same time it is fascinating. The video has been on my favourites list on youtube for months, but somehow I forgot to blog it…..

side note:  I wouldn’t even know Damien Rice existed if it wasn’t for Grace Buford and Each Passing Day, whom I am a big fan of and who have covered most of Damien’s songs.

Feist – Lo, How A Rose E’re Blooming (German Christmas Carol – 16th century)

Es ist ein Ros’ enstprungen – Lo, How a Rose E’re Blooming

I learnt the German traditional song “Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen” when I sang in the church choir long time ago. Michael Prätorius composed it in the late 16th century. It is unknown who wrote the lyrics.

I love Christmas Carols but I never loved this one…until yesterday, when I first listened to Leslie Feist’s version:

Her version’s just brilliant, very simple, clear, classy, and beautiful. The style slightly reminds me of “The Park”.
