Yip, the same Johnny Cash. Do you know the name of the song? I'm sure its called 'President Garfield's Been Shot Down' or something like that! Maybe i'm just going mad.

p.s. The 4 Hero song has nothing to do with JC, its just a great wee tune.

"A Boy Named Sue" ... Johnny Cash ?

Naw man! A Boy Named Sue is a great wee tune as well though. I'm gonna have to buy the 'Murder' album now just to satisfy my curiosity. My pal had it when we were in Uni, top tune.

'Balladeer' is a great word, Bono once called Christy Moore a 'wandering minstrel', sums the genius up perfectly.

p.s. Christy Moore that is, not Bono.

Its my last day at work in London and i'm kinda drunk from my pub lunch, times are good!

So I guess "Ring Of Fire","Folsom Prison Blues", and "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen", aren't part of your Johnny Cash's repertoire either ...

I'm not saying he didnt write A Boy Named Sue! Of course he did, i was just saying that it wasnt the song i was talking about!!! The song i was asking about was based on the assassination of President James Garfield. Doesnt matter.

Right, the songs called 'Mr Garfield', its on Johnny Cash's 'Murder' Album.

Sorry 'bout the scene folks.

Uhhh ah man !!... All the stuff I listen to hasn't been mentioned !!! Try Taproot, Chevielle, Sonata Artica, Lacuna Coil, Earshot, Eighteen Visions, Revis.... It's all good and gravey etc etc. Though I am quite partial to a bit of Busted. Who could refuse theyre boish charms and "unique" guitar skills ?!

Quoting WeeJoe

I like songs that echo actual events and tell stories, but not 'i wanna hold your hand and love you til the end of time' or 'you left me, how could you' cr*p, so i like a lot of folk music because social history interests me.

Also, traditional Irish session music is the best drinking music ever. For some of the best, listen to 'Planxty' or 'The Pogues'.

"Dirty Old Town" is a classic Pogues' song. After a few drinks anyone can sing it, no matter how bad they sound


"Raglan Road" has the most clever lyrics of all time: "And I said let grief be a falling leaf ..."

"The Gypsy Rover": I learnt this one in Grade 3.

"Molly Malone":..."In Dublin's fair city where the girls are
so pretty ..."
"Whiskey In The Jar": ..."Whacko! The derrio!"

"The Black Velvet Band":..."Her eyees they shone like diamonds"

And let's not forget Davey Arthur & The Furey Brothers, Van The Man, Foster & Allen, The Chieftains, and with or without U2
