    And this Echo and the Bunnymen song was the first one that came to mind (and I needed a week of practice to get it together)

    Inspired by this week's theme, "Over The Sea" an original written and recorded this week.

    So many great videos this season. Glad to be a part of it.

    Default WHere the mountains of mourne sweep down to the sea

    Exiles are often deluded in two respects.
    They paint fanciful pictures of the places where they now live,
    and they live on memories of the the places they have left.

    This is my third song this week. Is this a recent record? And I even plan to get a Bonus in tonight or tomorrow!

    It is a history of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's iron clad ship S.S. Great Britain which ended its days as a wreck in the Falkland islands and was brought back to Bristol as a hulk.

    The song was written due to two coincidental events in my life. I was living in Bristol and had a good friend with an artist's studio near the S.S. Great Britain (which is moored in Bristol docks) and I was still feeling sick from the awful jingoism of the previous year when Mrs Thatcher had launched a war to boost her flagging popularity. The most shameful moment of that war for me being when a leading popular newspaper (The Sun) published a picture taken from the periscope of a British submarine showing the sinking Argentinian battleship General Belgrano (with the loss of 750+ lives) under the triumphalist single-word headline "Gotcha!" - I had never been so ashamed of having been born in Britain.

    Now jingoism is back with a vengeance due to the Brexit fiasco, I am doubly proud that I drew on my family tradition and took out Irish nationality some years back.

    Anyway - here is "S.S Great Britain"



    PS If you are ever in Bristol, a visit to the refurbished ship is a must.

    Ahoy, Seasonistas! It's weekend and our "Sea" Season 316 has almost 2 days to go. If you are working on a song or just got an idea, there is still plenty of time until the end of the Season.

    I've listened to your fine songs and updated the playlist. And I must say, I've had great fun! Overall, I'm very impressed with the songs you have brought to this Season - be it great originals, forgotten gems or well-known classics. Also, I've really enjoyed the photos and video footage that you have used to illustrate your songs. Thank you all so much!

    "Rotterdam", a traditional song about sailor's life, sung in Estonian. I've been coughing the whole week, so I've got even less voice and pitch than usually, but wanted to join the party.

    An Otis Redding tune that was one of the first that came to mind when I discovered your theme this week. Much more difficult than I anticipated! Would have liked to contribute more this week, but it's been crazy busy. . .

    Thanks for hosting Hummingbird!
