Rolling in the Deep as Gaeilge
Oh my Time Lord, I have discovered that this is from “Glee Lurgan”, whatever it is, I can’t really follow cause I’m obviously a total non-speaker but it’s… amazing. There are dorky schoolkids singing songs as Gaeilge, there’s a Puck and a Quinn, I don’t even care - this is brilliant. In episode 3 they do American Idiot at the end of the video. Freaking goldmine. Epi 4 starts with girls doing the ~Sharpay routine~ before singing S&M, ahahaha how can I not love this shit?! There is also Teenage Dirtbag [I learned how to spell beaibí] and then this guy just rolling across the floor singing Jessie’s Girl, which they translated to Cion Agam Uirthi which translates to “I have affection for her”. Hah.
This particular video is from epi 5 [but this particular song lacks subtitles, most other ones do, which is awesome] where there’s also Footloose and Mr Brightside… Man! I hope this never gets taken off the internet.
HEY LOOK, LYRICS:
Mothaím tine ag lasadh i mo chroí
Ní féidir stopadh ag smaoineamh faoi na cúrsaí mar a bhí
Dé réir a chéile, éiríonn sé níos teo
Tá’s a’m anois nach bhfeicfidh mé thú go deo
Chuir na réalta os cionn i gcuimhne dom
An grá ‘tá a’inn is an grá a bhí eadrainn
Chuir na réalta o cionn i gcuimhne dom
Nach bhfuil tú a’m
Bhí sé go léir againn
Grá gan fadhb gan phian
Ach d’fhág tú mé gan faichill ar bith
Ag smaoineamh, is ag smaoineamh
Bhí mé caillte, gan chúis, gan aon treo
Daoine lag, uaigneach folaithe sa gceo
smaoineamh might be one of my new favourite words, unf.

Pick 5 artists that you love before reading the questions.
Florence + the Machine
1. What is your favorite song of 5?
The Stolen Child
2. What kind of impact has 1 left on your life?
Björk completely changed the way I think about music; especially when it comes to electronic music. And as a musician she’s had a profound influence over how I treat my own music. As a person she’s warm and free-spirited and one of my idols, I couldn’t look up to her more.
3. What are your favorite lyrics by 2?
”If every man says all he can, if every man is true, do I believe the sky above, is Caribbean Blue?”
5. How many times have you seen 4 live?
As for right now, I haven’t, but I’m getting to see them next week!!
6. What is your favorite song by 1?
It’s between All Is Full of Love (album version) and It’s Not Up To You
7. Is there any songs by 3, that makes you sad?
Not particularly, mostly Lady Gaga empowers me.
8. What is your favorite song by 2?
Favourite Enya songs… hmm.
Less Than A Pearl
9. When did you first get into 3?
I remember I hadn’t really heard of Lady Gaga until the whole Bad Romance/Fame Monster era just began, but after that I was sold.
10. When did you get into 2?
I got into Enya, around my second year in high-school, at first I couldn’t listen to her at all, save a song or two; eventually tho I grew to more than love her and her music, but obsess. Today I have everything that Enya has recorded including b-sides, singles. I’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on Enya… and I love it.
11. What is your favorite song by 4?
Blinding; there’s no compitition with that question, Blinding is by far my favourite.
12. How many times have you seen 5 live?
None yet; she hasn’t been to Arizona or around here in ages.
13. What is a good memory concerning 1?
Having my friends grow from not liking her to having them request her when I put on music :)
14. Is there a song by 2 that makes you sad?
Haha… most of them, in a way.
As Baile, and Hope has a Place are the two that make me sad the most.
15. What is your favorite song by 3?
So Happy I Could Die and Bloody Mary; I couldn’t decide.
