Question The inevitable...Fave Danny Kirwan song?

You all KNEW I was gonna do this, right? LOL

It's hard to pick one song...I love all his stuff from Bare Trees so much!! I have YET to listen to Then Play On and I need to get the early FM stuff...but as of right now...my fave song of Danny's from FM is:

**Bare Trees - Talk about a catchy tune....and that riff!!

Runners-up:

**Woman of a 1000 Years - I LOVE this song...the melody is GORGEOUS, and it is just so....AWESOME!! Soothing...mellow...

**Child of Mine - The guitar is AWESOME on this one!!

Smile GREAT CHOICES!

It's funny Christy, I was going to ask you what your faves were on the "DK with FM" side of the tape but I see you've listed "Woman of 1000 years" so I've got my answer there!

Cool Danny Kirwan

Christy I'm glad you discovered Danny Kirwan. He is one of my favorite FM members. I love his guitar playing and the melodies of his songs. Too bad we didn't get to hear more from him.

I agree with you on favorite song..."Bare Trees"!! There are so many more.

Talking DK ROCKS!

John, I LOVE the song...it's GORGEOUS!! I love the part that goes "...how are your sons of a time ago..." <--- AWESOME melody!! The whole dang song is just....beautiful!

I just thought of another song I am LOVING from Then Play On...Coming Your Way..OMG, that song is AWESOME!!!! Dragonfly ROCKS too!!

I LOVE Silver Streams, Skip a Dee Do, Caroline, Wings of a Dove, Misty Riva (HAHA) and Second Chapter the most from his solo stuff.

Joe, I have John to thank for my newfound fandom. He was a nice Ledgie and made me two tapes of DK's stuff!! I REALLY wish all of his solos were on CD tho. You are right in that there are many songs of his I love..Sunny Side of Heaven is GREATNESS too!

The only song I've listened to that gets on my last nerve is California...DUMB backup singers...need to shut up!! LOL

Love Dust too!! GORGEOUS SONG!!

Easier if I put it THIS way:

The only Danny Kirwan song I DON'T like (in fact ABHOR) is...


,,, "When You Say"

Even dear Christine couldn't save this stinker of a tune.

Arrow Wow, chilid....

Why do you hate the song so much? I haven't heard it, but does it really suck THAT bad!!?? YIKES! I am going to be getting the TPO with it on there, it was included in my lot of LP's I won on ebay...so I will soon find out how bad it really is. Bummer.

I like a lot of Danny's tunes, but my personal fav right now is "Loving Kind", from that live in Boston reissue. Great rhythms by Mick and some great guitar from Danny. I also like "Like Crying", "Something Inside Of Me", "Like It This Way". I guess I'm partial to the earlier stuff.
