A LITTLE MOORE FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE OR MAYBE NOT

On my last BATTLE OF THE BANDS, I wasn't sure which artists I wanted to pit against each other. Now, I see that it might have been a more interesting BATTLE, if I had Put Gary Moore up against Alvin Lee. Two similiar version and yet different. Well, if you scroll down and view and VOTE on that BOTB, you will see that I didn't do that. BUT in light of the current sad events in the world this week, here's something by Mr. Moore that you can enjoy until the 21st, when I'll be back with my vote and the final tally for BOTB XXVI.


Do you know the story behind this song? If not google it. Then look a little deeper into who was on that flight and who they really were. It's pretty interesting - feel free to read SAD. Makes you kind of wonder, doesn't it.

  2. I knew Moore dealt a lot with real events in his music.

    1. It doesn't get more 'real' than this.

  4. I didn't know about this song, but I DID know about the murdering of those passengers on that plane... primarily because I know about the importance of U.S. Congressman Lawrence McDonald from Georgia.

    Just a coincidence that probably the most patriotic, most Constitutionally-devoted man of Congress was on that plane?

    Coincidence? Fuhgeddaboudit!

    Read: 'WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS: A Reverent Review Of The U.S. Constitution' by Lawrence Patton McDonald ('Introduction' by Dan Smoot)

    A copy of it is on my bookshelves; a copy of it should be on every true American Patriot's bookshelves!

      I do recall that it was I who first made you aware of Gary Moore.

      Before you posted this blog bit, were you aware that I had written a review of Congressman McDonald's book about the Constitution?...

    3. I'm a little surprised that you DIDN'T know this song, but NOT AT ALL surprised that you didn't need to google a thing here.

      Actually, it was another blogger who first turned me onto Gary Moore during Nanowrimo his name is Jon Paul and he blogs at skymeetsground.blogspot.com, although when I checked this morning he hasn't posted anyting for about a year now. Of course you did further my education in Mr. Moore's music.

      I was aware of who and what Congressman McDonald was, and of his book, but I had not read your review until today when you sent me there. As usual your review did a fine job of highlighting not only the book, but the problems in this country, primarily due to the knotheads who take so much for granted. Sadly, today there are still only 4 reviews posted, actually one isn't even a review but a (positive) comment to your review.

      So who do you suppose was the 'Wicker Man' on this most recent sacrificial jetliner?

    4. Whoa! That surprises me because I distinctly remember you saying that I had introduced you to someone new to you (whom you really liked) when I mentioned Gary Moore or linked to one of his songs.

      Maybe it was simply the particular song that was new to you and I mistook you to be referring to the artist. (If memory serves me - and it might very well NOT - I believe the song in question was 'Still Got The Blues For You'.)

      The older I get the less I know right.

  5. I'm a big fan of Gary Moore (since his Thin Lizzy days)-was sad when he passed at so young an age.

    I'd forgotten this song, but it sure is kind of sad how history repeats itself.

    1. I've been a fan of Mr. Moore since (well read my comment to STMc).

      Sad doesn't begin to describe it.

  6. No, I didn't know that had happened. Yes, I had to Google it. What a tragedy. A tragedy that continues to repeat itself. And this is one of the reasons why I sometimes feel that my irrational fear of flying isn't all that irrational.

  7. I'm with you on that irrational fear of flying. Even though I've flown a lot and for long distances, I'm still pretty much white knuckling it the whole way. It's not so much a fear of dying, but of the sheer terror of knowing you're in a big metal bird falling out of the sky and the possibility of survival with a LOT of pain.
