Lost In Music

In d. People & Animals by admin / November 27, 2011 / 0 Comments

Just in case you haven’t noticed or guessed every post here has a musical title that’s related to the photo(s). Sister Sledge have a song called Lost In Music and it fits this man browsing in HMV, Limerick perfectly. It vaguely reminds me of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing album cover (vaguely I said)

We’re lost in music
Caught in a trap
No turnin’ back
We’re lost in music

Oh To Be, Oh To Be, Oh To Be A Rebel

This is my second set of photos from Páirc Ui Chaoimh, home to Cork GAA hurling and football.
These photos some an empty stadium and shows the patterns and colours on the stand and terrace, which is normally hidden/covered by fans.
The last photo isn’t staged, Conor saw the flag, ran over and started waving it.

Here’s the link to my first set of photos from ‘The Park’ (Páirc Úi Chaoimh).

You’re always so calm and so cool,
Donal Óg just knows what to do,
Mulchay, Muphy, The Rock,
Will just play each minute on the clock.

Sean Og, Ronan and John,
They will just sting you along,
They’re just sheer class on the grass,
Rebels, we watch as they pass.

Gerry O Conor will leave you for dead,
Tom Kenny, he’ll fix you then
The attack starts all over again,

McCarthy wheels at you,
And Neil Ronan he knows what to do,
All they have to do is keep hurling at you.

Oh to be, oh to be, oh to be a Rebel,
We love ye Rebels, you’re so slick and so sharp,
We love ye Rebels with every beat of our heart,
We’ll follow Rebels all the way to Croke Park.

Lyrics taken from here, thanks to cathalosull21. It’s a slightly outdated song now but is from when Cork hurling was at it’s pinnacle (in recent times).

Let’s bring out the Liberty Bell (Shandon Bells, Cork)

I was originally going to delete this photo but the more I look at it the more I like it, the view from down a side street. The Shandon Bells (official name Church of St Anne) is the building with the clock in Shandon, Cork City. It’s known locally as the “Four Faced Liar” because each face (four clocks, one on each side of the church) show slightly different times.

Let’s Ring Out The Liberty Bell is a great song by Autamata

Limerick Inner City Life (Goldie)

This was taken from the 7th floor of The Savoy hotel in Limerick City. It’s a view of Limerick (or any city) that most people don’t see or, if they do, pay any attention to. It stands out to me as it’s the unseen side of a city, the ‘behind the scenes’ part without any shiny shopfronts.

On a vaguely related note I always pay attention to the condition of the toilets in any establishment. Sometimes you have an extremelly fancy restaurant/store but the toilets are very basic or even dirty. Which my mum always said to me is a reflection on the establishment overall. If they can’t bother to keep the toilets clean how can you trust them with the hygeine of your food, after sales service etc.
The second photo is just the original cropped and in black and white. I couldn’t decide which I preferred so I posted both.
