The Samhain Dances

For some unknown reason the holiday of Samhain is a dancing holiday to me. But not just dancing to dance, dancing to express in movement what I can’t in words. So I give you the Samhain Dances playlist.

1. 25 Years – Blackmore’s Night
2. The Mummer’s Dance – Loreena McKennitt
3. Just Call My Name – Blackmore’s Night
4. The Rede ( An It Harm None) – Gaia Consort
5. Samhain – Heather Alexander
6. Morrigan’s Quest Laura Powers
7. Village Lantern – Blackmore’e Night
8. Samhain Madrigal – Laura Powers
9. The Masts of Morrigan – Maddie Prior
10. Faerie Queen – Blackmore’s Night
11. Samhain Chant – Moonstruck
12. I Guess It Doesn’t Matter Anymore – Blackmore’s Night
13. All Soul’s Night – Loreena McKennitt
14. World of Stone – Blackmore’s Night
15. The Circle is Cast – On The Wing’s of Song
16. Samhain – Steeleye Span

And yes, I’m currently obsessed with the group Blackmore’s night which is really Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple fame and his wife Candace Night. If you like Loreena McKennit and her album “The Visit”, you will love them, especially the album “Village Lantern”. “25 Years” is about a nightmare and “I Guess It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” is about a ghost. But “25 Years” will make you dance in your seat in the car.

Ipod danger

Now that I have a new car and can connect my Ipod to the Stereo I’m dangerous while driving, I can now sing along again, The  Jeep’s tape deck had died long ago. It does have a strange ability to play the right songs on shuffle. But for some strange quirk when my sister is in the car it plays children’s songs. Heehee.
