#Music Monday – ♪Dark Sky Island♪

I am not a big music fan. I do try to do a couple of #MusicMonday posts a year just to keep that “Music” category from collecting too much dust.

Dark Sky Island is Enya’s latest album, from back in 2015. All her fans have given up ever trying to get her to release anything even semi-quick, so considering there is still no news of a new album in ’21 comes as no surprise to any of us. We just keep on listening to what she has released.

This youtube embed has several of the “official” music vidoes. I recommend just listening though. Next to Amethystium, Enya is my favorite musical artist. And that should do it for 6 months for music and me.

♪O Come ♪All Ye Faithful♪

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels!

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, alleluia,
All ye choirs of angels;
O sing, all ye blissful ones of heav’n above.
Glory to God
In the highest glory!

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be the glory giv’n;
Word of the Father,
Now in the flesh appearing,

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

In 12hrs from the posting of this, I should be in church at our annual Christmas Eve service. I am hoping that we will sing this hymn. But whether this hymn or others, I will be singing the truth out with fellow believers in Jesus. I cannot wait!

[Masters of Ironing] Soothing the Savage Beast

It has been said that music can tame the savage beast, without or within. Probably whoever said that was famous and wouldn’t know a savage beast if it bit them on the backside. Here at Masters of Ironing, we know better.

Let put this “hypothetical” question to you. If you were running through the Streets of Amsterdam and a lion was chasing you, would you rather have a tiny little flute in your hand or piping hot 5lb iron, preferably the good old T200 version?

Remember the Old Wise Ironing Adage: “A hot iron in hand is worth two lions in the bush“.

Forget not this precept my children and you will live a long and prosperous life.

#Music Monday – ♪Record of Lodoss War♪ Opening and Closing Song

The is the opening and closing song to the Record of Lodoss War OVA anime that I plan on reviewing next week (I believe. I’m trying the block editor again and really missing the calendar function). This is the English version, as I couldn’t find any videos of the japanese with english subtitles.

The opening song is titled Adesso E Fortuna and the closing song is named Fantasia Of The Wind. Most of the pictures in the video are from the anime but a few are from fanart sites. I plan on talking about these songs in the anime review so I am not saying much here.

#Music Monday – ♪Winterborn♪

Back in 2013 life was hard, for quite a variety of reasons. A cousin of mine had introduced me to the band Cruxshadows. I was listening to their discography as much as I could.

Came across a reference to this particular song on an old blog and thought I’d share. What better way than a Music Monday post. This is the acoustic version. You can search out the regular version on Youtube if you so desire, but this is just so much smoother.
