Damn. I wanted to post about a different singer for this weekend but I just had to be seduced by the waves of emotions from none other than Damien Rice. Been listening to him for years now and the first and only song that I had Ghost in the title. Downloaded it randomly and it stayed. Then Sponkers brought me Damien’s O album which became my emo album of the year with hits like Volcano, CannonBall and Blower’s Daughter. My personal favorites are Cold Water, Older Chest and Cheers Darling. You can count on him to lay a warm blanket of sadness with a fluffy depressed plush bunny tucked neatly under your head, making you feeling all warm and fuzzy.
The beautiful soothing voice complimenting Damien’s rougher tone is of Lisa Hannigan. Sadly though I read they had split and went separate ways. I am too comfortable now to go find out what happened. Here is my favorite being played live. FingerNailsInMyEye probably would enjoy them.

And another newer one from Damien’s 9 Crimes album.

Check out all their videos in YouTube. Tell me if you like them. If you don’t, then shut up and go play else where. Yup, their songs are getting to me.
Argh. I can’t stop. This you must give a listening too. It’s Volcano but in a different version from the album O. Much more upbeat, energetic and the way everyone is gyrating and enjoying every moment of it… like each is in their own world… just beautiful as the voice plainly creeps in at the end. I just love the way Lisa is moving with her hands in her pockets. Remind me of someone who loves doing that too. Hee…..
