Clannad appreciation

I posted this in the wrong forum. So it's now going to be a Clannad appreciation thread.

I have Clannad's Greatest Hits, and Bono's In A Lifetime is on it.

They've got some really good stuff. The Theme from Harry's Game is just an amazingly beautiful song. I actually want to listen to it now

Where have I seen that before?

I don't have any Cd of Clannad, but do have 2 or 3 of Celtic Music and there are a few great songs of Clannad as "In search of a Heart", "I will find you" (Theme from "The Last of The Mohicans"), "The Last Rose of Summer", etc. I'd describe the songs I've heard as haunting, with a captivating sound and great lyrics. Their duet between Maire Brennan and Bono "In a Lifetime" is their greatest hit and, one of the most remarkable song of the 80s and one of my favorite ever. That's one on the track list of the CD in my car Cd player.

Some beautiful lyrics:

"In a Lifetime"

hard to tell
or recognise a sign
to see me through
a warning sign

first the thunder
satisfied, if the past it will not lie
then the storm
torn assunder
the future you and I get blown away
in the storm
in a lifetime
and as the rain it falls
begin again, as the storm breaks through
heavy in my heart
believe the light in you
so the light shines in you
without color, faded and worn
torn asunder in the storm

unless the sound has faded from your soul
unless it disappears

first the thunder
selfish storm
then the storm
hold on the inside
torn asunder
one life
in the storm
in a lifetime
in a lifetime

"In Search Of A Heart"

This heart of mine won't keep
Or believe in the secret, like the moss on a stone
This heart of mine won't beat
It just carries itself away
These parting times won't break me
Deserted times stop running
-backwards-
Ar do chul

This form of love won't share
Or give in to a feeling with nothing to gain
No compromise in time
You're so near and yet so far
These parting times won't break me
Deserted times stop running
-backwards-
Ar do chul

And when i turn in silence found
What i say won't let you down
And when your call, outside my door
Ends the searching...

"The Last Rose of Summer"

'Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone.
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.
No flow'r of her kindred,
No rosebud is nigh,
To reflect back her blushes
Or give sigh for sigh.

I'll not leave thee thou lone one
To pine on the stem,
Since the lovely are sleeping
Go sleep thou with them;
Thus kindly I scatter
Thy leaves o'er the bed,
Where thy mates of the garden
Lie scentless and dead.

So soon may I follow
When friendships decay,
And from loves' shining circle
The gems drop away!
When true hearts lie withered
And fond ones are flown
Oh! Who would inhabit
This bleak world alone?


I found that I also have these:

"You're The One"

when the cold wind blows
an the rain keeps tumbling down
and there's no one there
when the morning light shines on

you're the one to lend a hand
you're the one who understands
you're the one to comfort me
the keeper of my heart

the moments we share
will never fade away
all the treasure and gold
wouldn't make me change anyway

you're the one to lend a hand
you're the one who understands
you're the one to comfort me
the keeper of my heart

this heart of mine
might change as the seasons run by
like a small stream
that turns and runs to the sea


"Theme From Harry's Game"

(This song recieved the Ivor Novello award, England's equivalent of the Grammy)

Gaelic:
Imtheochaidh soir is siar
A dtainig ariamh
An ghealach is an ghrian

Fol lol the doh fol the day
Fol the day fol the day
Imtheochaidh an ghealach's an ghrian
An Daoine og is a chail 'na dhiadh

Fol lol the doh fol the day
Fol the day fol the day

Fol lol the doh fol the day
Fol the day fol the day

Imtheochaidh a dtainig ariamh
an duine og is a chail ne dhiadh

Fol lol the doh fol the day
Fol the day fol the day


Translation
I will go east and go west
[To the places] from whence came
The moon and the sun

The moon and the sun will go
And the young man
With his reputation behind him

I will go wherever he came from -
The young man with his reputation behind him
