Odetta



Anger/joy/love/loss? Odetta feels it so hard, and it thrills me every time I listen.

Comments:
Damn. That was felt in the bone.
 
That is heart and soul in sound. Thanks for sharing!

I'd recommend www.spotify.com as another Youtube way of finding the song at the back of your mind.
 
Ha! Gotcha ;)

Nice to see some life on your blog!

Cheers! :-)
 
Wow.
That much passion is both a gift and curse.
 
Emma you said that Odetta thrills you everytime you listen.

This song "Scorn not his simplicity" written by Phil Coulter:

A song written about his Downs Syndrome son, never fails to make me cry. This is my favourite version performed by Luke Kelly.
(Who incidently also had a son with Downs).

Although Sinead OConnor and Phil Coulter also have versions.

I warn you have tissues ready.
