    Music Exchange - Ronan Collins

     This weeks Music Exchange comes from Ronan Collins:

    So many songs and so many memories and too many songs to pick just one that REALLY stands out! Well one song that has always stood out for me is "The Tracks of My Tears" by Smokey Robinson and The Miracles one of the greatest Motown songs of all .I just think the melody, the lyrics, the vocals and the musicianship gel completely to give what is ,to me, a perfectly constructed pop song. As to the memory associated with the song, as I'm sure you think there has to be one, well mind your own business-it's not for sharing.

    Music Exchange: Kathryn Thomas

     

     This weeks music exchange is brought to you by Kathryn Thomas:

     

    I spent the last weekend listening to Tom Petty; my ultimate summer album. Runnin’ Down a Dream reminds me of a month long road trip I did in Australia with my mother and sister. My poor mother was demented with our choice of music, but always took Tom Petty over ACDC. It’s a great driving song – hope you enjoy it

    Music Exchange with Shay Byrne

    This week, Shay Byrne from Risin' Time (Weekdays from 5.30-7am) brings us down his memory lane.

    People talk about the Summer of Love as being 1967 but for me it was 1990. I'd just left school and a gang of us headed away on 'The Trip To Tipp'. Five girls, four boys, two guitars and a newfound sense of freedom and possibility. I was smitten with a red head from Kildare named Aisling. Late on the Saturday with the sun setting and Aisling sitting beside me on the pitch at Semple Stadium we sang along to the Hothouse Flowers 'It'll Be Easier In The Morning'. And at that moment all was right with the world.

    Enjoy

    Music Exchange: Maxi Still in Love with You - Phil Lynott

     

    This week, Maxi, gives us one of her all-time favourites..

    The song I can't get out of my head all week, is Still in Love with You by Phil Lynott.

    Phil started life as a poet and used to go to the poetry readings in Slattery's of Terenure when he was a teenager. A little encouragement from the masters there , gave him the courage to keep on keeping on . He went on to worldwide fame and 27 years after his death, his memory is living and loved.

    This is strong song, one he always dedicated to his mother Philomena , who is featured in On The Street Where He Lived , all about highs and lows of love .

    Music Exchange: Joe Duffy - Bridge Over Troubled Water

     

    This week, Joe Duffy from Liveline, gives us one of his all-time favourites..

    A song I can never hear enough is Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Simon and Garfunkel. I particularly remember Art Garfunkel performing it in the Olympia in 2003, at the start of the Gulf War and he got a standing ovation before the song had ended. He had been on Liveline earlier that day talking about recent events in the Gulf.

    That song takes on a meaning for every person who hears it, and in every new situation.

    Enjoy...
